    You can't download AIX unless you have a sales contract and a login to their Electronic Entitlement site. Talk to your sales rep.

    You will still need an AIX 7.1 Enterprise Edition license

        If you use the chedition command to change to an edition that your company have not purchased, you AND YOUR COMPANY would be in violation of the AIX license terms and subject to legal penalties.

        In addition there is no practical difference in AIX capability between standard and enterprise editions. The value of the Enterprise Edition is in the bundling of products other than AIX such as Smart Cloud entry, WPAR Manager, PowerSC and ITM.
