I need to move my 8.1.7/11.5.7 Oracle system to a new server running AIX 5.3. We are currently on AIX 4.3.3. Is this a simple migration? Are there any known issues with this and can I simply clone the database and apps over or will there be patches needed?

I always perfer creating a brand new database on the target server. Then export/import. Make sure to bring along any functions, sequences, and such from the source database.
use dbca
and netca
check your $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin files (tnsnames.ora an listener.ora)
I just went through this without any client machines even knowing we moved to a new server and new database.

Check your $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/pfile.ora to be sure you have current database parameters.

You may have to dns the server name to prevent hiting every desktop client machine. The clients will need to know where the new server lives somehow.
