Migrating data and applications from V3R7

We have a new server V5R2. I'd like to copy all of the data, and the running application systems to the new server. My current system is V3R7. Can you please tell me how to achieve this?

Migrating data and applications from V3R7 is not supported by IBM. However, I would refer you to Chapter 15 of the Backup and Recovery Guide for R520. There you'll find the steps on how to migrate data from one release to another on a different system. This might work for you, but remember it's not supported.
