The Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Implementation and Administration (AN12G) course teaches you how to install, customise, and administer the AIX OS (operating system) in a multi-user Power Systems partitioned environment.
The course is based on AIX 7.2 running on a Power Systems server managed by Hardware Management Console and provides practical discussions that are appropriate to earlier AIX releases.
- Introduction to IBM POWER p systems, AIX, and system administration
- AIX System Management Tools
- System startup and shutdown
- AIX installation
- AIX software installation and maintenance
- System configuration and devices
- System storage overview
- Working with the Logical Volume Manager (LVM)
- File system administration
- Paging space
- Backup and restore
- Security and user administration
- TCP/IP Networking
- Workload Partitions
This intermediate course is intended for system administrators or anyone implementing and managing an AIX operating system in a multiuser POWER (System p) partitioned environment.
You should be able to:
- Log in to an AIX system and set a user password
- Execute basic AIX commands
- Manage files and directories
- Use the vi editor
- Use redirection, pipes, and tees
- Use the utilities find and grep
- Use the command and variable substitution
- Set and change Korn shell variables
- Write simple shell scripts
- Use a graphic Common Desktop Environment (CDE) interface
These skills can be acquired by attending AIX Basics (AN10AU) or through equivalent AIX or UNIX knowledge. Also, it would be helpful, but not mandatory if you were familiar with partitioning concepts and technology taught in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11AU).
