That's a lot of items in one single thread!

That's why I will cut it short:

1) /etc/passwd and /etc/security/passwd

2) /usr/dt/config/C/sys.resources
dtsession*saverTimeout:  10
dtsession*lockTimeout:   30
dtsession*cycleTimeout:  3
dtsession*saverList: xxxxxxxx

3) /etc/security/audit/bincmds , /etc/security/audit/streamcmds , /etc/security/audit/config

4) Always recorded in /etc/security/failedlogin
View with "last -f /etc/security/failedlogin"

5) lssrc -s syslogd

6) lsdev -C -l inet0, lsattr -El inet0

7) All files/diretories are present in AIX as well.

8) /usr/sbin/cron , /var/spool/cron/crontabs

9) /var/adm/cron/log (default), /etc/cronlog.conf

10) lssrc -g yp
Remove NIS with rmyp -s (server) or rmyp -c (client)

11) instfix -i

12) http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/pseries/v5r3/topic/com.ibm.aix.files/doc/aixfiles/netgroup.htm#xqr310mart
