AIX Workload Partitions Installation and Management

Currently no upcoming Class Dates


You will learn how to configure and manage Workload Partitions (WPAR) 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. You will explore various configuration options such as implementing private and shared file systems, exporting devices, setting resource controls, and configuring network options. You 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 enabling AIX 5.2 or AIX 5.3 images to be restored to a WPAR running under AIX 7.1.

This course provides lectures and hands on labs in a face-to-face classroom setting. The course is also offered in a live virtual classroom environment (ILO - Instructor Led Online) with hands-on labs: AIX Workload Partitions Installation and Management (ILO) (AX170).
