Students in this course will learn how to configure and manage workload partitions (WPARs) in the AIX environment. Hands-on exercises will reinforce the lecture and give students practice creating and managing both application and system WPARs using the command-line interface. Students will explore various configuration options such as implementing private and shared file systems, exporting devices, setting resource controls, and configuring network options. Students will practice operations such as starting and stopping WPARs, performing dynamic configuration changes, and tracking data in log files. The course also covers the installation, configuration and management of versioned WPARs using the AIX 5.2 Workload Partitions for AIX 7 licensed program product.
The audiences for this training include System p and AIX technical support individuals, AIX system administrators, system architects and engineers.

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
