PowerVM on IBM i – I:Implementing Virtualization and LPAR           (AS5EGG)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Overview

Learn the concepts of Logical Partitioning (LPAR) for Power System servers with IBM i. In this course you begin with an overview of LPAR on Power System servers, followed with more detailed information on configuration planning and implementation using hands-on exercises to create and implement logical partitions.

Also, learn about partial processors, dynamic allocation and reallocation of memory, processors, interactive Commercial Processing Workloads (CPW), buses, Graphical User Interface (GUI), Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), Host Ethernet Adapters (HEA) and System Planning Tool (SPT). Use IBM Power7 or Power6 servers and emphasize the new hardware, including the use of the Hardware Management Console (HMC).

This course provides lectures and hands on labs in a face-to-face classroom setting.

Who should attend

This intermediate course is for technical specialists, support/services individuals, individuals implementing LPARs for Power Systems with IBM i. This course is also appropriate for IBM Business Partners who sell and plan for consolidated systems.

Prerequisites

You should have:

  • some knowledge of Power system architectural concepts
  • some experience with Power System servers
  • attended Hardware Management Console (HMC) for Power System with IBM i (OL520GB) (OV520GB)(OP520GB); or have the equivalent knowledge
  • Entry level knowledge of LPAR on current systems is helpful, but not required.
