I was on 5.3 until last year.  Now it's all on 7.1. All db filesystems have inline logging. System ones (/tmp, /usr, etcetc) are on a shared lvg. Never had a problem, with or without safe shutdown.

 Well shucks. I've been fighting JFS2 corruption every reboot, even if it
 they are very sporadic (annually?). Scared the [insert colorful term here]
 out of me the first time it happened. It's just like EXT3 on Linux,  requiring an fsck to fix. Hopefully that's limited to AIX 5.3 or perhaps
 split logging on the FS -- I plan on using internal logging on the new 7.1

 Looks like I'm set to do some time trials with duplexed redos vs. solos! :)
