I'm trying to run a MF Cobol executable on an Integrity Itanium system. I believe the problem is the runtime and libraries are ELF-32/IA64 and the program is PA-RISC1.1 shared executable dynamically linked. Aries indicates this will not work. Is there anyway to convert the PA-RISC executable to IA64?

In the context I think you mean, no.
As for libraries, the Aries manpages are clear: "Aries does not support PA-RISC applications that load Itanium-based shared libraries. In other words, mixing PA-RISC binaries with Itanium-based shared libraries is not supported. Aries is meant only for pure PA-RISC applications, such as binaries that are either statically or dynamically linked with PA-RISC libraries only."

No, the problem is that you must copy the PA MF runtime and libs over to your Integrity server.
If MF did their installation correctly, the runtime & libs should be in different paths so you can both run native and PA executables on Integrity.

Once you have the PA-RISC MF Cobol environment available on Integrity, the PA-RISC Cobol executables should work fine under ARIES.
You cannot convert PA-RISC executables to IA64, instead you can recompile PA-RISC Cobol sources using Integrity native MF Cobol.
