Hi Robin,

Can IBM VM run on Intel Chip also support IBM AIX as guest operating system ?

I had tried VMware/ AMAZON Cloud and Oracle VM.

Please advice.

Have a great weekend.

As i have already stated above: AIX can only operate on pSeries hardware. The answer is no, therefore.

I hope this helps.

You need to use a RISC based system which is a P-Series system. For something cheaper you may want to look into a RS/6000.

You can not use AIX/VIOS on a Intel based system.

Just in case, also to clear up, There are no visualization software out there that I know of that allows you to install AIX as a guest.
- VMware
- virtual box
etc.


I remember a long time ago someone had mentioned they got this working on PearPC but not VIOS only AIX 5.3. I wouldn't get my hopes up about this though because I have not seen any updates recently.

Hi,

IBM z\VM should be mainframe. What is the guest operating System (VMware term) could be run on this platform.

Please advice.

Did you try my link above? There are lots of articles about the options. Try the Redbooks, but ignore anything about Java or Tivoli.

These might be useful:-

On P-series, you'd VIOS for "virtualization". That more like Sun "domains". AIX supports the idea of "containers" as well for a softer form of virtualization. z/VM is for the zSeries mainframes.

Apart from "in the lab", AIX doesn't run on x86... Could it? I'll let you decipher "in the lab". As for VIOS, probably not (today).

So, right now, if you want/need AIX, you really need to get a p-Series host. Or you can pursue a cloud offering if you want something cheaper (talking about just playing around or learning AIX). Most people don't want AIX experience, but the whole shebang... that is, they will want VIOS experience. Getting into p-Series, VIOS and AIX isn't going to be cheap. Just the way IBM made that.
