cp /usr/lib/terminfo/ibm.ti /usr/lib/terminfo/ibm.bak.ti
copied the ibm3151 entry to a new entry called "ibm3153" and we
removed the rs2 and is2 entries in the 3153 entry.

You should see a new terminfo entry:
set your TERM=ibm3153 either via smit chgtty or simply
export TERM=ibm3153 for a test without making this a permanent
