Sometimes you need to merge two NIM lpp sources. For example you have an installable lpp source aix_710101_I , which in my NIM object naming convention is AIX 7.1 TL01 SP01. Then you download SP5 from Fix Central and create a (non installable) lpp source aix_710105_U . Next time you'll install AIX, you'll probably want to install AIX 7.1 TL01 SP5. You can of course install SP1 and then update to SP5, or create an installable lpp source of SP5. Or my favourite way - have a Golden Image AIX mksysb with SP5, but that's another topic.
