About this course

Course code TPZL1_AS5E
Duration 3 Days

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. The course is also offered in a live virtual classroom environment (ILO -Instructor Led Online) with hands-on labs: PowerVM on IBM i - I: Implementing Virtualization and LPAR - ILO
