Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning- AN11G


Length  –  24 hours

Level –  Intermediate



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)

Learning Journeys or Training Paths that reference this course:


Power AIX Administrator

Power AIX Administrators: Administrators: Virtualization

IBM Power systems for AIX virtualization



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



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



Describe important concepts that are associated with managing POWER 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

Describe the functions provided by the HMC

Configure and manage the HMC, including users and permissions, software, start and shutdown, remote access features, network configuration, security features, HMC backup and restore options, and the HMC reload procedure

Describe the rules that are associated with allocating resources, including dedicated processors, processing units for Micro-Partitioning, memory, physical and virtual I/O for AIX and Linux partitions

Configure and manage LPARs by using the HMC graphical user interface (GUI) and HMC commands

Power on and power off the Power Systems server Use the HMC to back up and restore partition data

Perform dynamic LPAR operations (DLPAR)
