IBM : Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning


Velisa Africa is the official Global Knowledge partner in Sub-Saharan Africa. Course details : https://www.globalknowledge.co.uk/courses/ibm/operating_systems/an11g.html

Learn how to perform system administration in a Power Systems environment. Learn about the features of PowerVM Editions and how to configure and manage LPARs running AIX V7.1 using the Hardware Management Console (HMC).

Pre-Requisites

General TCP/IP knowledge is strongly recommended. This prerequisite can be met by attending TCP/IP for AIX System Administrators (AN21G).This introductory course does not require any logical partitioning experience.

  • Introduction to partitioning
  • Hardware system overview
  • Hardware Management Console
  • Hardware Management Console maintenance
  • System power management
  • Planning and configuring logical partitions
  • Partition operations
  • Dynamic LPAR infrastructure

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe important concepts associated with managing POWER7 processor-based systems, such as logical partitioning, dynamic partitioning, virtual devices, virtual processors, virtual consoles, virtual local area network (VLAN), and shared processors
  • Describe the features of the PowerVM editions
  • Use the System Planning Tool to plan an LPAR configuration
  • Describe the functions provided by the HMC
  • Configure and manage the HMC, including users and permissions, software, startup and shutdown, remote access features, network configuration, security features, HMC backup and restore options, and the HMC reload procedure
  • Describe the rules associated with allocating resources, including dedicated processors, processing units for micro-partitions, memory, logical host Ethernet adapter, and physical I/O for AIX and Linux partitions
  • Configure and manage LPARs using the HMC graphical user interface (GUI) and HMC commands
  • Interpret physical and AIX location codes and relate to the key hardware components
  • Power on and power off the POWER7-based system
  • Use the HMC to back up and restore partition data
  • Perform dynamic LPAR operations (DLPAR)

This course is appropriate for system administrators, technical support individuals, and IBM business partners who implement LPARs on IBM Power Systems.

This is an Instructor-Led Virtual Class.
*** The 3 course days are spread over 5 afternoon sessions
*** Session runs from 1:30pm to 5:30pm UK Time – for 5 days
