AIX Jumpstart for UNIX Professionals – AN14G


Length – 40 hours

Level -Intermediate



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.



You should be able to use basic UNIX commands to:

Execute basic AIX commands

Manage files and directories

Use the vi editor

Use redirection, pipes, and tees

Use the utilities find and grep

Use command and variable substitution

Set and change Korn shell variables

Write simple shell scripts

The above skills can be acquired by attending AIX Basics AU130 or AN100 or through equivalent AIX/UNIX knowledge.

In addition, you are expected to have hands-on experience administering a UNIX operating system (such as Solaris, HP/UX, and others) including:

User management and system security



System shutdown and restart

Backup and recovery

System task scheduling



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.
