I don't think there will be an issue. But still you have to verify.
What AIX version are you in now? And what maintenance level? The reason is, I've encountered a patching scenario before where the database version is 10.2.0.2 and there's an IO Interoperability issue between IBM ML05 and higher and Oracle DB. Those issues are what you should watch out for.
