Power Systems for AIX – Virtualization I: Implementing Virtualization
This advanced course is appropriate for System Administrators, Technical Support Personnel, and Business Partners responsible for implementing LPARs on IBM Power Systems with AIX servers.
You should have advanced system administration experience with AIX 5.3 or later. This prerequisite may be met by attending one of the following courses:
- Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Implementation and Administration (AN120) or Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Implementation and Administration (ILO) (AX120)
- or you must have equivalent AIX and LPAR skills.
General TCP/IP knowledge is strongly recommended. This prerequisite may be met by attending TCPIP for AIX Administrators (AN210).
You are also expected to have logical partition administration skills on POWER6 or (later generations) of processor-based systems, which can be obtained by attending Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN110).
This course provides an overview of the PowerVM edition’s features on POWER6 and POWER7 processor-based systems. It explains the new features and benefits of virtualization including processor virtualization, Integrated Virtual Ethernet, Virtual I/O Server, and virtual devices, such as virtual Ethernet, virtual SCSI, and virtual Fibre Channel adapters. Basic and advanced configurations of the Virtual I/O Server and its clients are discussed including various availability options.
Expand your knowledge about PowerVM features that were introduced in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN110) / Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (ILO) (AX110).
