Power Systems for AIX III: Virtualization - Implementing Shared Storage Pools

IBM Course Code: AN320CE

GK# 0468 Vendor# AN32G

Course Overview

TOP

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.
