Hi experts, there seem to be several Administrator related AIX exams. Which one should taken first? I am new to AIX and have been thrown into the role of AIX admin. Thanks!

Hi,

the first certificate (if you're after certificates) should be the IBM Certified System Administrator - AIX:

IBM say you should have 18 months of practical experience with AIX for this.

Next step upwards could be the IBM Certified Advanced Technical Expert - Power Systems with AIX v2:
Three years of experiece required, IBM say.

The above already covers some aspects of the indispensable virtualization theme. You should indeed deepen your knowledge in that area - here comes the IBM Certified Systems Expert - Virtualization Technical Support for AIX and Linux:

There are two more Systems Expert certifications, the Enterprise Technical Support for AIX and Linux -v2:

and High Availability for AIX Technical Support and Administration (HACMP/PowerHA):

Good lucK!
