Yes, due to a security issue (V7R1 doesn't support new enough protocols),
all of the yum packages for V7R1 were removed late last year.

Unfortunately, you'll need to move to V7R2 to use Nodejs.

There may be some yum repo mirrors around where you could find the packages
for V7R1, but I wouldn't recommend it. Even if you do find them, they
aren't being supported by IBM anymore which means they aren't getting
security patches.

Based on what I read here: I
think your assumption is correct. AIX 6.1 is the highest AIX version
supported by 7.1 Looks like you have some binaries build for an AIX
version more recent than that.
