I install the client software (with service pack) without doing the server side and all is well. This of course assumes your workstations do not connect to i as a managed system.

The method in the MTU has been tested by IBM (and therefore is the IBM recommended method) for every circumstance that they can think of.

I have connected LAN console with my 64bit Win7 box running V7 i Access on it to a V5R4 box (in my office) with no problem so I'm not sure if that's why it's recommended.

If I read the V7R1 MTU correctly, it suggests to install V7R1 i Access on
the IBM i before installing V7R1 of the OS.

I have always installed the new version of i Access_on all the PC's_ prior
to installing the new version of the OS on the i, but unless my memory is
failing, I don't think I've installed the newer version of i Access on the
IBM i prior to the install. Does everybody else do this?

The i Access Installation and Setup guide says I should install all the
following at that time:
5770-SS1 option 12
5770-XE1 base
5770-XW1 base,1

All of the above prior to the OS install. Really? Does that work?
