PowerVM on IBM i-I: Implementing Virtualization and LPAR

GK# 9306 Vendor# AS5EG

Course Overview


In this course you begin with an overview of LPAR on Power Systems, 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). Additionally, you will use IBM Power Systems including the Hardware Management Console (HMC).

What You'll Learn

  • PowerVM features
  • Hardware components in the Power Systems, Flex System and Power Blade models
  • Virtualization options available, reliability features and single points of failure for Power Systems  
  • Implement System Planning Tool in design or update your own system
  • Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT)
  • Memory allocation and affinity concepts
  • Configure a partition profile 
  • Virtual I/O
  • Base characteristics of IVM and how to implement IBM i on Power Blades
  • NPIV PowerVM feature, how to configure virtual Fiber Channel adapters on the Virtual I/O Server and client partitions
  • HMC GUI and commands to work with the World Wide Port Name (WWPN) pairs
  • Commands used to examine the NPIV configuration
