Test C4040-108: Enterprise Technical Support for AIX and Linux -v2


All IBM certification tests presume a certain amount of "on-the-job" experience which is not present in any classroom or Web presentation.  These recommended roadmaps will help you gain the skill and product knowledge which is represented in the test objectives.  They do not teach the answers to the test questions, and are not intended to do so.  These courses may not cover all subject areas in the certification test(s), or may contain more recent information than is present in the certification test.  Taking any class does not guarantee that you will achieve certification.

Course title: Power Systems for AIX III: Advanced Administration and Problem Determination

Course duration: 5 Days

Course number: AN15G

Abstract: Learn advanced AIX system administrator skills focusing on availability and problem determination. Learn detailed knowledge of the ODM database where AIX maintains configuration information.

Learn to monitor for and deal with AIX problems with emphasis on Logical Volume Manager problems, including procedures for replacing disks.

Learn how to migrate AIX Workload Partitions to another system with minimal disruption. While the course includes some AIX 6.1 enhancements, most of the material is applicable to prior releases of AIX.

There is also an instructor-led online version of this course: Power Systems for AIX III: Advanced Administration and Problem Determination (ILO) (AX150)


Redbook

Publication number: REDP-4639

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication is a comprehensive guide covering the IBM Power 770 and Power 780 servers supporting IBM AIX®, IBM i, and Linux® operating systems. The goal of this paper is to introduce the major innovative Power 770 and 780 offerings and their prominent functions, including:

PowerVM™ virtualization technology is a combination of hardware and software that supports and manages the virtual environments on POWER5™ , POWER5+™ and POWER6™ -based systems. It is a major tool to help simplify and optimize your IT infrastructure.
Available on most IBM® System p™ servers as optional Editions and supported by the AIX® , Linux® and i5/OS® operating systems, this set of comprehensive systems technologies and services is designed to enable you to aggregate and manage resources using a consolidated, logical view. The key benefits of deploying PowerVM virtualization and IBM System p are as follows:

  • Cut energy costs through server consolidation
  • Reduce the cost of existing infrastructure
  • Manage growth, complexity, and risk on your infrastructure
To achieve this goal, PowerVM virtualization provides the following technologies:
  • Virtual Ethernet
  • Shared Ethernet Adapter
  • Virtual SCSI
  • Micro-Partitioning™ technology

Additionally, these new technologies are available on POWER6 systems:

  • Multiple Shared-Processor Pools
  • Optional PowerVM Live Partition Mobility

To take complete advantage of these technologies and master your infrastructure needs as they evolve, you need to be able to correctly monitor and optimally manage your resources. This publication is an extension of PowerVM on System p Introduction and Configuration, SG24-7940. It provides an organized view of best practices for managing and monitoring your PowerVM environment with respect to virtualized resources managed by the Virtual I/O Server.
