Power Systems for AIX - PowerVM I: Implementing Virtualization


Description: 

This course provides an overview of the PowerVM edition's features on POWER6, POWER7, and POWER8 processor-based systems. It explains the new features and benefits of virtualization including processor virtualization, Virtual I/O Server, and virtual devices, such as virtual Ethernet, virtual SCSI, and virtual Fibre Channel adapters. Basic and advanced configurations of the Virtual I/O Server and its clients are discussed including various availability options.

Expand your knowledge about PowerVM features that were introduced in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN110).

This course provides lectures and hands on labs in an instructor lead course environment, either in a face-to-face classroom or in a live virtual classroom environment (ILO - Instructor Led Online).

Audience

This advanced course is appropriate for System Administrators, Technical Support Personnel, and Business Partners responsible for implementing LPARs on IBM Power Systems with AIX servers.

Objectives

  • Discuss the advantages or value of PowerVM edition's features
  • Define micro-partitioning and shared processor LPARs
  • Discuss the benefits of simultaneous multithreading
  • Discuss and configure the Integrated Virtual Ethernet (IVE)
  • Install and configure the Virtual I/O Server
  • Configure virtual network devices, such as virtual Ethernet and shared Ethernet adapters
  • Configure virtual SCSI and virtual Fibre Channel storage adapters
  • Configure virtual SCSI target devices on a virtual SCSI adapter
  • Define file-backed storage pools and file-backed virtual optical devices
  • Identify single points of failure in virtualized environments
  • Configure multiple VIO servers for high availability
  • Configure advanced virtual networking options
  • Configure the shared Ethernet adapter failover feature
  • Configure advanced virtual SCSI options
  • Configure MPIO in a VIO server's client partition
  • Manage the service events, configure call home, add, exchange FRUs, and discuss FSP failover
  • Perform PowerVM (VIOS) Maintenance

Prerequisite: 

You must have advanced system administration experience with AIX 6 or AIX 7. This prerequisite can be met by attending one of the following courses:

  • Power Systems for AIX II: Implementation and Administration (AN12G)
  • Power Systems for AIX III: Advanced Administration and Problem Determination (AN15G)
  • AIX Jumpstart for UNIX Professionals (AN14G)

Alternatively, you must have equivalent AIX and LPAR skills.

General TCP/IP knowledge is strongly recommended. This prerequisite can be met by attendingTCP/IP for AIX Administrators (AN21G).

You are also expected to have logical partition administration skills on Power Systems servers, which can be obtained by attending Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G).
