HP Integrity VM and HP-UX vPars Administration

( Duration: 3 Days )

The HP Integrity VM and HP-UX vPars Administration training course provides experienced HP-UX administrators with the knowledge to develop the skills needed to manage the virtual server environment.

By attending HP Integrity VM and HP-UX vPars Administration workshop, Participants will learn to:

  • Identify potential Virtualization Services Provider (VSP) systems, based on available hardware and software resources
  • Configure vPars and VMs using vPars/HPVM software installed on the VSP
  • Control, monitor, and manage vPars and VMs, including modification of resources statically and dynamically
  • Migrate VMs offline and online between VSPs
  • Migrate vPars offline between VSPs
  • Configure the Globally Unique ID manager (GUIDmgr) software to support virtualized fibre channel HBAs using NPIV
  • Position virtual servers in a highly-available Serviceguard environment

  • Experience in HP-UX System and Network Administration
  • Equivalent HP-UX administration experience on Integrity servers

  • Experienced HP-UX system administrators responsible for managing and monitoring Integrity i2 servers virtualized with vPars/HPVM.1+
