Here is the cite I was looking for. It will allow you to use 32 bit kernal extensions on AIX 5l (64 bit) to get your database over for the migration. If you haven't it on the box already, you don't have to do anything. Just migrate it. But be sure that you do not have the compatible parameter set in your init.ora. It will definitely cause you major problems.

The problem is with the post-wait kernel extension.

This may help

Note:231901.1 Oracle in 32-bit / 64-bit Kernel Mode on AIX 5L

This patch may or may not help - Patch 2896876

Good luck,

  We are looking to "copy" an database on a AIX 4.3.3 server to a   server running on AIX 5.1. Does anybody have any   experience doing
  this? Can we mount an 32-bit database on the new platform and   then upgrade?
