Power Systems for AIX III: Virtualization - Implementing Shared Storage Pools (AN32G)
This advanced course is for anyone responsible for implementing and managing virtualization features on an IBM Power Systems server including:
- AIX technical support individuals
- System administrators
- Systems engineers, and
- System architects
You must already know the basics of configuring and managing a Virtual I/O Server and virtual devices, including file-backed devices. This prerequisite can be met by attending the following course:
- Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization I: Implementing Virtualization (AN30G)
or have equivalent LPAR and Virtual I/O Server skills.
This course provides the implementation and management skills to create Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) storage groups and shared storage pools on IBM Power Systems. Students learn to create a VIOS storage group, manage storage in the shared storage pool, provision storage to client partitions using either thick or thin provisioning, mirror the shared storage pool, create and use snapshots, and manage the VIOS storage group configuration by learning how to do backups, restores, and software upgrades.
