Course Outline

  • Describe important concepts that are associated with managing POWER8 processor-based systems, such as logical partitioning, dynamic partitioning, virtual devices, virtual processors, virtual consoles, virtual local area network (VLAN), and shared processors
  • Describe the features of the PowerVM editions
  • Describe the functions provided by the HMC
  • Configure and manage the HMC, including users and permissions, software, start and shutdown, remote access features, network configuration, security features, HMC backup and restore options, and the HMC reload procedure
  • Describe the rules that are associated with allocating resources, including dedicated processors, processing units for Micro-Partitioning, memory, logical host Ethernet adapter, and physical I/O for AIX and Linux partitions
  • Configure and manage LPARs by using the HMC graphical user interface (GUI) and HMC commands
  • Interpret physical and AIX location codes and relate to the key hardware components
  • Power on and power off the Power Systems server
  • Use the HMC to back up and restore partition data
  • Perform dynamic LPAR operations (DLPAR)
