Objectives

  • Explain what high availability is
  • Outline the capabilities of PowerHA SystemMirror
  • Design and plan a highly available PowerHA cluster
  • Install and configure PowerHA SystemMirror in the following modes of operation:
  • Single resource group on a primary node with standby node (active/passive)
  • Two resource groups in a mutual takeover configuration (active/active)
  • Configure resource group startup, fallover, and fallback policies
  • Perform basic system administration tasks for PowerHA
  • Perform basic customization for PowerHA
  • Perform basic problem determination and recovery

This course is the first in the PowerHA 7 curriculum. The following courses can be taken after this course is completed:

  • PowerHA 7 Advanced Configurations (AN62G) 

Audience

The audience for this advanced course is students who are experienced AIX system administrators with TCP/IP networking and AIX Logical Volume Manager (LVM) experience who are responsible for the planning and installation of a PowerHA SystemMirror 7.1 and later cluster on an IBM Power Systems server running AIX V6.1 or later. The lab exercises are conducted on an AIX 7.1 TL2 level system.
