The course is based on AIX 7.1 and AIX 7.2 running on a Power system managed by Hardware Management Console or under a standalone full partitioned environment. This is an excellent opportunity for experienced UNIX users and system administrators using HP-UX, Solaris, Linux or any other UNIX flavor.

This intermediate course is appropriate for experienced UNIX system administrators who want to support AIX running on POWER processor based systems in a multiuser POWER (System p) partitioned environment. This course is intended for persons who:

  • AIX technical support individuals
  • System administrators
These skills can be acquired by attending AIX 6 or AIX 7 Basics (AN100) or through equivalent AIX/UNIX knowledge. You should also have experience administering a UNIX operating system (such as Solaris, HP-UX, and others) including:
