Hi rituraj mishra and welcome to LQ,

Below is a copy from our welcome page, and also my suggestion is that you perform a web search with the phrase "convert aix to linux" and I believe you'll find a great deal of helpful information about this topic.

Hello and welcome to LQ. You were pointed here because a fellow LQ member feels the thread you started doesn't contain enough information to enable us to help you. We understand that Linux can be intimidating for new members, and we really do want to help. That said, please understand that LQ is not a help desk, customer service line for a product you purchased or willing to do your homework (although we are happy to assist you with specifics, if you show some effort of your own!). We're a 100% volunteer organization that wants to help you help yourself.

Here are a couple tips that will enable us to help you moving forward:

When asking a question, be sure to provide as many relevant details as possible. You should include the distribution and version you're using, along with hardware details, application version and exact error messages where applicable.
Using a descriptive title will vastly increase the number of members who see your thread, and therefore make a response significantly more likely.
If you're actively troubleshooting an issue you should also include any steps you've already taken.
You may want to include how what you are experiencing differs from what you expected to experience.
Before posting, have you used the search function to ensure your question hasn't been asked before?
You can edit your post by clicking the EDIT button in the bottom right corner of your message.

If you are unwilling or unable to ask questions in a manner that allows us to help you, it's unlikely our community will be able to provide you a solution. Unfortunately, serial offenders who show wanton disregard for this request after multiple pointers may be asked to seek help elsewhere. We truly hope that isn't necessary, and assure you Linux and Open Source are extremely rewarding and well worth the learning curve in the long run.

There is no way for anyone to answer your question in any meaningful way, based on what you posted. Everything will depend on your applications, current architecture, planned new system, versions of those things, etc. "Major Issues"?? Again, if you have a system with shell scripts that process text files...probably none. If you have a system using many applications/databases with lots of customization...potentially THOUSANDS. Who can tell you?
