Hi Chris,

  NetArchitect 1.1 only uses the NetView APIs to allow users to load
devices from the NV map into NetArchitect.  Other than that, it really
doesn't depend on the platform for anything.  I know of customers who have
hacked/worked around the install issue and are using NetArchitect 1.1 on
the native AIX Operating system.

It's not supported, but it should work fine once you get around the install
issue.  Don't know if the map will sync over, but you can get the devices
in manually or from Optivity NMS rather than NetView.
