IBM AIX Training

This IBM AIX Training enables you to perform everyday tasks using the AIX operating system. Learn to perform everyday tasks using the AIX operating system.

AIX is an open standards-based UNIX operating system developed by IBM for use on many of its various computer platforms. Although AIX incorporates many elements of standard UNIX implementations, it includes some unique features as well, and UNIX systems administrators would benefit from AIX training if their jobs call for those specialized skills.

This AIX training will start with basics topics like File system of UNIX, Architecture of UNIX, Wildcard characters, Vi-Editor, Usage of filter commands etc.

Then it will cover AIX introduction where you will be introduce to P-Series P4, P5, P6 and P7 hardware features. The AIX course will also compare between AIX 6.1 vs AIX 5.3. It will explain you Evolution of AIX servers and AIX OS, also about AIX on blade servers.

This IBM AIX training will also cover AIX installation where you will learn how to install AIX using new and overwrite method, Preservation method and migration method.This IBM AIX training will also cover topics like Devices, AIX Standalone booting procedure, Software installation, Security and User Administration, Storage Technology like DAS, NAS, SAN.

The AIX course will also cover Logical Volume Manager, its benefits, its components, Physical storage, Logical storage, RAID levels, MWC (Active, Passive), LVM questionnaire include real time issues related to LVM.

IBM AIX training will also explain you about File systems, Paging space, Scheduling, Backup and restore, WPAR, Problem determination, Networking, Network File Sharing (NFS) and Performing tuning.
