Hello Chris,
got to your LPP_SOURCE dir of 5.1 which has ML04 included.
inutoc .
smitty nim_res_op
to update the LPP_SOURCE ML04 with the added Packages.
Then it should be running.
Haven't done this on my NIM-Server.
I always split ML and AIX_LPPSOURCE into different LPP_SOURCES.
There will be 2 steps to install a machine, but it will be easier if new ML
