AIX Jumpstart for UNIX Professionals

5 Days

Description

Provide focused training for experienced UNIX administrators on how to install, customize, and administer the AIX operating system in a multiuser POWER (System p) partitioned environment. The course is based on AIX 7.1 running on a Power system managed by Hardware Management Console version 7 and provides practical discussions that are appropriate to earlier AIX releases.

Audience:

This intermediate course is intended for experienced UNIX system administrators who need training to support their transition to supporting AIX running on POWER processor based systems in a multiuser POWER (System p) partitioned environment.

Objectives:

  • Install the AIX operating system, filesets, and RedHat Package Manager (RPM) packages
  • Perform system startup and shutdown
  • Discuss and use system management tools such as System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) and IBM Systems Director console for AIX
  • Manage physical and logical devices
  • Discuss the purpose of the logical volume manager
  • Perform logical volume and file system management
  • Perform and restore system backups
  • Use the AIX error log as a tool in problem determination
  • Configure Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) networking
