Hi,

AIX proper really only runs on IBM's pSeries and ocaisionally I've seen it on iSeries, there is a greater range of equipment that will run Linux pSeries( Power8 Only ), iSeries, zSeries and xSeries.

I'm not sure that I know of any way of running AIX under Virtual Box, I've had experience of runing Solaris and SCO under Virtual Box and any number of Linux'es seem to run just fine.

My best guess would be that it's not possible, however I stand ready to be corrected.

Regards
