PSAIX-VIR2 - Power System for AIX- Virtualization 2 Training Course


Duration: 3.0 days
In a Power VM virtualization environment, the Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) is a critical entity since all the running VIO client LPARs are fully dependent on it. In such an environment, updating VIOS to the next level of code can be challenging.

Although the VIOS environment is (typically) redundant, when updating a VIOS, the VIO LPAR clients are temporarily exposed to a single point of failure during the update. Minimizing update time is valuable since it reduces the window of exposure in this course, we will try to follow the best practices and learn how to implement it.

All the Labs cost need to be borneby client as all the exercise will be done over the cloud for the same.


Manage temporary data sets with a function called virtual input/output (VIO). use DASD space and system I/O more efficiently than other temporary data sets.use the BPAM, BSAM, QSAM, BDAM, and EXCP access methods with VIO data sets. SMS can direct SMS-managed temporary data sets to VIO storage groups.
