Linux has a "limitation" of 65K groups per user, and this has been true
for many years now.

If you use NFS with sys auth instead of krb5 auth then you have a
limitation of 16 groups per user, but this is a protocol limitation
valid for all OSs, it is not a limitation of Linux. And using krb5 auth
there is no such limitation.

We did some qualification/documentation testing on AIX a while back. All
I can say is that AIX can work agains FreeIPA just fine, but I am in no
way an AIX expert and the docs we have on freeipa.org are all I can tell
you to use as I already forgot all the details we dicovered at the time
we tested AIX :)

Let me know if there is anything unclear about AIX clients in the
documentation on freeipa.org.
