This is what made me think it is 6.1. 7.1 is OK, as long as you understand that the NIM-server has to be higher than anything else it serves.

Also, the NIM server is usually not a productive system and it doesn't matter if it is available all the time. This is why it is an ideal test-bed for new AIX versions and to get experience with them. This is why i like to have it at the "bleeding edge of technology", whereas i am far more conservative when it comes to productive systems.

I hope this helps.
