Nim Master Problem

All,

I'm testing NIM on a 7026-m80 machine.
But everytime i want to setup the master, i get this error message...
Anyone who knows how to solve this issue? google doesn't seem to know much about it

Code:
# nim_master_setup

############################## NIM master setup ##############################
#                                                                            #
#  During script execution, lpp_source and spot resource creation times      #
#  may vary. To view the install log at any time during nim_master_setup,    #
#  run the command: tail -f /var/adm/ras/nim.setup in a separate screen.     #
#                                                                            #

Looks like the spot is 5.3 TL5, what level is the NIM master?
The master (NIM server) must be at at least the same level as the spot / mksysb.
