Who Can Benefit
This intermediate course is intended for system administrators or anyone implementing and managing an AIX operating system in a multiuser Power Systems partitioned environment.
You should already be able to:
Log in to an AIX system and set a user password
Execute basic AIX commands
Manage files and directories
Use the vi editor
Use redirection, pipes, and tees
Use the utilities find and grep
Use the command and variable substitution
Set and change Korn shell variables
Write simple shell scripts
These skills can be acquired by attending AIX Basics (AN10G)or through equivalent AIX or UNIX knowledge. Also, it would be helpful (but not mandatory) if students were familiar with partitioning concepts and technology taught in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G).

great class and packed with material, would have lived to spread it more into many days but overall very informative.
I was very pleased with the course setup by ExitCertified and the instructor.
had a good time with the course, however some topics were left out due to the compact amount of time for training.
Overall ExitCertified is a great training provider and the remote learning is as effective as in person.
