Anyone out there done this hack/work around the install? I'm not much of a
hacker but need to make this work. Any tips from those who have done it,
or Bay folks willing to divulge how to do it (with no support expected!)
would be greatly appreciated!

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.
