What You’ll Learn
Describe important concepts that are associated with managing POWER8 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, logical host Ethernet adapter, and physical I/O for AIX and Linux partitions
Configure and manage LPARs by using the HMC graphical user interface (GUI) and HMC commands
Interpret physical and AIX location codes and relate to the key hardware components
Power on and power off the Power Systems server
Use the HMC to back up and restore partition data
Perform dynamic LPAR operations (DLPAR)
Who Needs to Attend
This course is appropriate for system administrators, technical support individuals, and IBM business partners who implement LPARs on IBM Power Systems.

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).
