Overview

This course is designed to prepare students to perform basic administration and maintenance on a PowerHA SystemMirror cluster.

Public

The audience for this advanced course is students who are experienced AIX system administrators with TCP/IP networking and AIX Logical Volume Manager (LVM) experience who are responsible for the planning and installation of a PowerHA SystemMirror 7.1 and later cluster on an IBM Power Systems server running AIX 6.1 or later. The lab exercises are conducted on an AIX 7.1 TL2 -level system.

Prerequisits

You should be AIX system administrator and have TCP/IP, LVM storage, and disk hardware implementation skills.
