AIX Jumpstart for UNIX/Linux Professionals Course Overview

This IBM AIX Jumpstart for Experienced UNIX/Linux Administrators training course is targeted at cross-training experienced HP-UX, SUN Solaris and other UNIX Administrators who wish to implement and manage systems capable of running the AIX Operating System. Students attending this course should therefore have a good understanding and experience of managing and running UNIX like systems.

Reference will be made to the AIX commands required to administer the system, although practical work will concentrate on using the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) to achieve the course objectives. Although the course is based on AIX Version 7.1, it is also appropriate for prior releases of AIX.

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Introduction to the P-SERIES Hardware and AIX
  • AIX 7.1 Installation and Initial Configuration
  • System Startup and Shutdown Procedures
  • Using the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT)
  • Using Web Based Information Browser
  • AIX Filesystems and Storage
  • Configuring Filesystems
  • Looking after Filesystems
  • Logical Volume Manager (LVM)
  • AIX Journaled Filesystems
  • Devices
  • The Object Data Manager
  • System Initialisation
  • Create Backup and Restore Routines
  • mksysb and savevg Commands
  • Software Installation and Maintenance
  • Disk Management
  • Alternate Disk Installation
  • Basic TCP/IP Network Configuration
  • AIX Problem Solving Tools including System Dump Facility
Who will the Course Benefit?

Experienced System Administrators and other Technical IT staff who need to cross-train to be able to implement and manage systems capable of running the AIX Operating System. Some shell programming experience will also prove advantageous; this can be gained on the AIX Shell Programming course.

Course Objectives

On completion of the AIX Jumpstart for UNIX/Linux Professionals course the delegate will have practical experience of the Systems Management Interface Tool (SMIT), allowing them to administer an AIX System.
