Does anyone have experience with moving from AIX 5.2 to AIX 5.3. The reporting server we have been running is AIX 5 2 and up pSeries 32on64bit. We are getting new hardware and the powers that be want to install the production box first becuase that is where its needed. We normally go through the IT - UAT - PROD route.

I've walked down this road a couple of times. The only problems I remember is keeping the whole 32 or 64 bit stuff in order with all the different client softwares. Once you know all of the softwares that are involved, you could open a problem with NY to have them give the thumbs up before you start rehosting.
