I never update it on the IBM i beforehand, but if I have Operations
Console, I always update that client to the latest version BEFORE upgrading
the operating system. I have used the 7.1 client to connect to 7.1, 6.1,
and 5.4 systems without any problems.

Subject: V7R1 i Access - install first
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
All of the above prior to the OS install. Really? Does that work?
