    Hi All,

    We are considering running 8.1.7 (32 bit) on AIX 5.1. This is a certified configuration, however I was wondering if anyone was using this or knew of any issues with this configuration?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Where did you see that 8.1.7 is certified on AIX 5.1?

    We are installing a new IBM p670 with the AIX 5.1L OS and hear from both IBM and from Oracle that only Oracle 9i release 2 is certified?

    It would be better if we could install 8.1.7 to avoid having both a new OS and a different Oracle release to contend with at once.

    Kernel modes AIX 5.1 introduces the option to run the AIX kernel in 64-bit mode. This mode is not supported, as Oracle 8i uses at least one 32-bit kernel extension.
    AIX-based systems must be booted with kernels in 32-bit mode.
