Learn to install, customize, and administer the AIX operating system in a multiuser Power Systems partitioned environment. The course is based on AIX 7.1 running on a Power Systems server managed by Hardware Management Console and provides practical discussions that are appropriate to earlier AIX releases.

You Will Learn How To

  • 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
  • Create and manage user and group accounts
  • Perform and restore system backups
  • Utilize administrative subsystems, including cron to schedule system tasks, and security to implement customized access of files and directories
  • Configure TCP/IP networking
  • Define and run basic Workload Partitions (WPAR)

Important Course Information

Requirements:

  • You should already 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 (AN10G) or through equivalent AIX or UNIX knowledge. Also, it would be helpful (but not mandatory) if students were familiar with partitioning concepts and technology taught in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G).
