But a "Slip of the Lic" implies you just replace the lic and are not
initializing the system. Otherwise it wouldn't be a slip of the lic, it
would be an install.

From an existing system running either something earlier than 7.1, or 7.1
and you want to scratch it and start over?

Well, if you are at 7.1 and want to scratch it and start over you might be
ok if all you want is LIC. (No OS and LPPs.) Otherwise it's going to
have a dickens of a time finding volume 2 after the disks have been
initialized.

Upgrading from 5.4 or 6.1 to 7.1 using image catalogs is done all the
time. Unless you are REALLY short of disk space it's the best way to fly.

An IBM i 6.1 environment on POWER6R processor-based server can be upgraded
to IBM i 7.1 with an image on the network file server.
