AIX 6.1 is listed as a supported platform for the universal forwarder. Splunk supplies the universal forwarder as a .tgz tarball file. You can unpack this to install it, configure it, and then start it.

We run several Splunk universal forwarders on AIX versions 5.3 and 6.1 without any major issues. Our indexers run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

There is no limit/restriction on which OS/Architecture of forwarder can talk to which OS/Architecture of indexer. As long as the version of forwarder and the version of indexer are compatible, you have your choice of hardware/OS platforms. That is, an AIX forwarder works with a Linux indexer just as well as it does a MacOS indexer or a Windows indexer.
