Hi Guys,

I would like to know if there is an available image to play with IBM AIX, if not is BSD close one?

Can I run AIX on top of ESXi or it must run on IBM hardware ?

Unfortunately, for AIX, you can only run on IBM Power systems. There's no emulation software available for x86 platform. If you want to practice AIX, you can rent a LPAR to play with together with HMC and even VIOS. Some companies rent out IBM hardware on a monthly basis and you get to remote access into these machines.
