Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G)



This is an intermediate course for architects, system integrators, security administrators, network administrators, software engineers, technical support individuals, and IBM Business Partners who implement LPARs on IBM Power Systems.


This course does not require any logical partitioning experience.

General TCP/IP knowledge is strongly recommended. This prerequisite may be met by attending:

  • UNIX / AIX Basics (AX100) or (AN100)
  • AIX Basics (AN10G)

    • Unit 2: Hardware system overview
    • Exercise 2
    • Unit 3: Hardware Management Console
  • Day 2
    • Unit 3: Hardware Management Console (cont.)
    • Exercise 3
    • Unit 4: System Planning Tool
    • Exercise 4
    • Unit 5: HMC and managed system maintenance
    • Exercise 5
    • Unit 6: System power management
    • Exercise 6
    • Unit7: Planning and configuring logical partitions
  • Day 3
    • Unit 7: Planning and configuring logical partitions (cont.)
    • Exercise 7
    • Unit 8: Partition operations
    • Exercise 8
    • Unit 9: Dynamic resource allocation
    • Exercise 9


  • Describe important concepts associated with managing POWER7 processor-based systems, such as Logical partitioning (LPAR), dynamic partitioning, virtual devices, virtual processors, virtual consoles, virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), and shared processors
  • Describe the features of the PowerVM Editions.
  • Use the System Planning Tool to plan an LPAR configuration
  • Describe the functions of the HMC
  • Configure and manage the HMC, including users and permissions, software, startup and shutdown, remote access features, network configuration, security features, HMC backup and restore options, and the HMC reload procedure
  • Describe the rules associated with allocating resources, including dedicated processors, processing units for Micro-Partitions, memory, physical I/O for AIX and Linux partitions
  • Configure and manage LPARs 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 POWER7 system
  • Use the HMC to back up and restore partition data
