Overview

This storage management course focuses primarily on how AIX interacts with Fibre Channel physical and virtual storage devices. Along with this general view, you will look at common operational issues such as performance and problem solving from the perspective of an AIX administrator.

This course uses a combination of instructor lectures and machine exercises to provide the student with practical background knowledge regarding the topics covered.

Audience

This intermediate course is intended for persons who manage AIX servers that utilize SAN-backed storage and who would like to know how to manage Fibre Channel attached devices to AIX and Virtual I/O Servers.. The audience for this training includes AIX technical support individuals, system administrators, and system architects.

Prerequisites

Students must have basic AIX system administration experience and this prerequisite may be met by attending the following course and its prerequisites:

  • AN12G Power Systems for AIX II AIX Implementation and Administration or
  • AN14G AIX Jumpstart for Unix Professionals

Note: Students who are planning to be Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) administrators should take the following courses instead of this course to get more indepth virtual FC and VIOS content. This course is for AIX Administrators who need to understand using physical and virtual FC devices when using AIX.

  • AN30G Power Systems for AIX - PowerVM I: Implementing Virtualization
  • AN31G Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization II: Advanced PowerVM and Performance

Objective

On completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Describe common interaction of AIX within a Fibre Channel (FC) environment
  • Interpret AIX boot strategies using SAN
  • Select key FC related performance characteristics to monitor
  • Use AIX commands for performance monitoring
  • Manage Virtual I/O Server FC devices
  • Initialize virtual FC resources
  • Define basic strategy for FC problem determination under AIX
  • Provide suggested solutions to common FC SAN problems under AIX

Day 1
Unit 1: AIX in a SAN environment
