You will have to obtain separate Sametime server software to load. 
Currently, you cannot install Sametime 3.1 (the latest release of ST) onto 
a 6.5.1 server. Technically, you can install it, but it is unsupported. 
Here is the info from a Lotus Technote on supported versions:

Sametime 3.1 for iSeries supports the following releases of Domino for 
5.0.12 and later R5 releases 
6.0.2 CF1 and later 6.0.x releases 
Domino 6.5

If you want full support, I would recommend installing the 6.5.1 code and 
then install another Domino partition (subsystem) on either 6.0.3 or 6.5 
since they are multi-versioning capable. This way, your mail server would 
be at the 6.5.1 stream with it's enhancements and you would be able to get 
assistance for any problems. Once ST is 6.5.1 friendly, you will be able 
to update that partition's code to 6.5.1.

The documentation with the Sametime server software is fairly thorough on 
how to set it up on an iSeries.

You do know that if you have software support for your Notes/iNotes 
clients that you get Lotus IM bundled? You are not licensed to use the 
Sametime Connect Client, but you can use the integrated IM and presence 
awareness for Notes/iNotes.

Finally, a Lotus tech told me that they are supposed to have a 6.5.xEXT 
code for iSeries that will install the necessary code for Lotus IM 
(Sametime). I believe it should be out this quarter, but you never know.

Where's it at - iSeries Lotus IM setup.

Now that I finally have Domino/Notes 6.5.1 media and the special 
Passport license for 20 Sametime clients I am looking at adding IM. The 
only information I have been able to find on setting up the server 
states that you have to 1) have a separate IP 2) a separate server 
instance and 3) not much detail on really doing it on the iSeries.

Where can I find the information on adding Sametime (hopefully using the 
same IP) as we go from 6.0.2CF1 to 6.5.1 or shortly thereafter?

I would really like to keep this as simple as possible as they only have 
one server (iSeries at R5V2, Domino, and Apache for HTTP).

I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way.
