Who Needs to Attend
This is an intermediate course for anyone with system administrative duties implementing and managing an AIX operating system in a multiuser POWER (System p) partitioned environment.

You should already be able to:

  •  Log in to an AIX system and set a user password
  • Execute basic AIX commands
  • Manage files and directories
  • Use the vi editor
  • Use redirection, pipes, and tees
  • Use the utilities find and grep
  • Use the command and variable substitution
  • Set and change Korn shell variables
  • Write simple shell scripts
  • Use a graphic Common Desktop Environment (CDE) interface
    These skills can be acquired by taking UNIX / AIX Basics (AN100/AX100) or through equivalent AIX or UNIX knowledge.

In addition, it would be helpful (but not mandatory) that you are familiar with partitioning concepts and technology as taught in Power Virtualization I: LPAR Planning and Configuration (AN110) or (AX110).
