Learn to install, customize and administer the AIX operating system in a multi-user POWER (System p) partitioned environment.
The course is based on AIX 7 running on a Power system managed by Hardware Management Console Version 7 and provides practical discussions that are appropriate to earlier AIX releases.
This intermediate course is appropriate for experienced UNIX system administrators who want to support AIX running on POWER processor based systems in a mult-iuser POWER (System p) partitioned environment.
