"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So do I first migrate to WebSphere MQ 8.0 maintaining 6.1.9 and then upgrade AIX to the correct 7.1.4 version?

Yes, as per
MQ 8 is compatible with AIX 6.1 so you maintain supported system config all the time before upgrading AIX to 7.x
