You should have basic AIX System Administration skills. These skills include:
- Use of the Hardware Management Console (HMC) to activate a logical partition running AIX and to access the AIX system console.
- Install an AIX operating system from an already configured NIM server.,
- Implementation of AIX backup and recovery.
- Manage additional software and base operating system updates.
- Familiarity with management tools such as SMIT.
- Understand how to manage file systems, logical volumes, and volume groups.
- Understand basic Workload Partition (WPAR) concepts and commands (recommended for the WPAR Manager content).
- Mastery of the UNIX user interface including use of the vi editor, command execution, input and output redirection, and the use of utilities such as grep.
These skills could be developed through experience or by formal training. Recommended training courses to obtain these prerequisite skills are either of the following:
- Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Administration and Implementation (AN12) and its prerequisites.
- AIX System Administration I: Implementation (AU14) and its prerequisites. (Note that AU14 does not cover WPARs).
If the student has AIX system administration skills, but is not familiar with the LPAR environment, those skills may be obtained by attending either of the following:
- System p Virtualization I: Planning and Configuration (AU73) / (Q1373)
- Power Systems Administration I: LPAR Configuration (AN11)
