AIX System Administration I

This IBM AIX System Administration training course is designed to give students practical experience in the administration of an AIX System. Reference will be made to the AIX commands required to administer the system, although practical work will concentrate on using the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) to achieve the course objectives. Although the course is based on AIX Version 6.1 it is also appropriate for prior releases of AIX.
The course assumes knowledge of the AIX Operating System to the level covered in the AIX Basics Course. Some shell programming experience may also prove advantageous; this can be gained on the AIX Shell Programming Course.
5 Days/Lecture & Lab
