What you need is who can access a specific AIX machine, right?
You have several sets of AIX machines, say 5, each of which has an HBAC
rule that relates a group of users X to a group of AIX machine with the
same set of users.
If you have non overlapping host groups you can fetch users with one
LDAP search from the puppet master.

I am not good with ldap syntax but SQL natural for me so conceptually
the search would look like this:

SELECT group.member FROM group JOIN hbac on group-DN JOIN host group on
hostgroup-DN WHERE hostgroup.member contains host X.

I hope it conveys what I have in mind. The result of such search would
be a list of group members that have access to the host.
This is pretty close to what you have done except it covers nested
groups too and uses HBAC rules.
