AS5EGG – PowerVM on IBM i – I:Implementing Virtualization and LPAR
3 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  IBM System

Course Details

Sammanfattning

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.

Målsättning

  • Describe the PowerVM features
  • Identify, describe, and locate hardware components in the Power System, Flex System and Power Blade models
  • Identify virtualization options available, reliability features and single points of failure for Power Systems servers
  • Implement System Planning Tool in design or update your own system
  • Explain Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT)
  • Describe memory allocation and affinity concepts
  • Describe and configure a partition profile, including shared processors:
  • Capped
  • Uncapped
  • Virtual processors
  • Weighting factor
  • Shared Processor Pools
  • Explain virtual I/O: Serial, Ethernet and SCSI
  • Understand and implement: IBM i installation through NFS, image virtual repository in VIOS, and assigning VSCSI disks to partitions in VIOS
  • Understand base characteristics of IVM and how implement IBM i on Power Blades
  • Describe the NPIV PowerVM feature, how to configure virtual Fiber Channel adapters on the Virtual I/O Server and client partitions
  • Discuss how to use the HMC GUI and commands to work with the World Wide Port Name (WWPN) pairs
  • Identify commands used to examine the NPIV configuration
