Power Systems for AIX III: Advanced Administration and Problem Determination

Tanfolyam célja

Learn advanced AIX system administrator skills focusing on availability and problem determination. Learn detailed knowledge of the ODM database where AIX maintains configuration information.
Learn to monitor for and deal with AIX problems with emphasis on Logical Volume Manager problems, including procedures for replacing disks.
While the course includes some AIX 7.1 enhancements, most of the material is applicable to prior releases of AIX.

Audience: This is an advanced course for AIX system administrators, and system support individuals with at least six months of experience in AIX.

Course objectives:

  • Perform system problem determination and reporting procedures including analyzing error logs, creating dumps of the system, and providing needed data to the AIX Support personnel
  • Examine and manipulate Object Data Manager databases
  • Identify and resolve conflicts between the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) disk structures and the Object Data Manager (ODM)
  • Complete a very basic configuration of Network Installation Manager to provide network boot support for either system installation or booting to maintenance mode
  • Identify various types of boot and disk failures and perform the matching recovery procedures
  • Implement advanced methods such as alternate disk install, multibos, and JFS2 snapshots to use a smaller maintenance window
