Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Implementation and Administration (AN12G)

Overview

Duration : 5 days

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.

Yes

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) through equivalent AIX
  • UNIX knowledge.

Also, it would be helpful (but not mandatory) if students were familiar with partitioning concepts  technology taught in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G)
