We are in the middle of migration our Oracle environment on IBM AIX 6.1 from POWER6 to P7. Versions are either or 11.2. We thought it'd be a normal migration but unfortunately 3 out of 4 test environments ran into problems. One of them corrupted datafiles while one corrupted three LUNs which in the end resulted in DB files corruption ofcourse. Has anyone in the list gone through this Power systems migration? Encountered into any errors?

I know the OS are certified ones and Oracle is certified on Power machines as well. I've digged in metalink and found one recommended note for tuning but thats all they have.
Now the fun part is, systems team is sure they have migrated around 100 database servers with DB2 and other databases, and none of them got any issues.

Please share any experiences if you have or any gotchas that should be taken care of.
