Setting up a New Rs6000 AIX Server
Posted on 2012-03-27
My company just purchased a new / refurbished Rs6000 P5-9131. This server runs a custom application and that's it. I work for a small company and have been given the task to setup the new server from scratch with a clean install of AIX 6.1 and move some of the data from the old dying server to the new one.
here are my questions..
1) Nothing is installed on the server. I only have the SMS console. How do I partition the hard drives. Commads, mirror etc...
2) My company used to use tivioli on the old server but they let their support expire and we no longer have access to the software. The old server was backed up using sysback nightly.
3) How can I move or copy the global pwd policy, local user account and other selec directly between servers??? FTP???? Is so this is yet another things I would need to setup..
Basically I need help from the most basic level all the way up. If I could make this question work 20000 points I would!!!
