A customer needs two client IBM i partitions on a 4-core Power 720, with storage hosted by VIO
Server. What is the least expensive method to manage this environment?
A customer has multiple POWERS 570 servers. The servers are controlled by multiple HMCs. The
customer is installing an additional Power 770 server in this environment but will retain their
existing HMCs. No updates to FSP or HMC levels have been made since installation of the
After reviewing the cover letters for ESP and HMC firmware levels, what updates are required to
support the addition of the new server into the network?
An administrator wants to share a fibre attached TS3100 tape library between multiple IBM i 7.1
partitions. The system contains a PC #5774 – 4Gb fibre adapter and uses an IBM fibre switch. All
IBM i partitions are hosted by VIO Server (VIOS).
How could the administrator configure the sharing of the tape library?
A client IBM i 7.1 partition is being hosted by dual VIO Server partitions (VIOS-1 & VIOS-2). A
Shared Ethernet Adapter (SEA) has been created in order to provide Ethernet failover capability
for the IBM i partition. The IBM i partition will use the Ethernet resources of the VIO Server
How many virtual Ethernet adapters need to be defined on the HMCI in the IBM i client, and VIO
Server partition profiles to support SEA and failover?
In addition to Qshell and PASE, what other product needs to be installed on an IBM i partition in
order to remotely run scripts on an HMC?
A customer wants two VIO Servers in the CEO of a proposed Power 720. To provide redundancy
for the IBM V7000 SAN they will utilize to provision disk for his client partitions.
What is the minimum required to make this possible?
A customer has purchased a new BladeCenter H (BCH) and POWER blade to run IBM i. The
POWER blade is configured with two Fibre Channel interlaces for attaching SAN and tape.
They have an IBM TS3500 tape library with a fibre channel connection, and current firmware is
running through a fibre switch to another IBM i system. One port on the existing switch and one
port in the BCH fibre switch has been zoned to provide a connection from the tape library to the
After IBM i 7.1 SLIC and base OS are installed on the blade from IBM distribution media, the tape
library does not appear in the device configuration.
What is the most likely cause of the problem?
Disk from a fibre-attached V7000 disk subsystem will be used for an IBM i partition. What type of
adapter is required in the IBM i partition?
A POWER7 system has 6 IBM i partitions sharing a single shared processor pool. The system has
3 IBM i operating system licenses. Without exceeding the licenses available, what is the largest
allowable value for the “Maximum processing units” setting in the shared processor pool?
A customer has several client IBM i partitions, hosted by other IBM i partitions. Corporate IT policy
specifies that certain optical and tape resources must not be available to client IBM i partitions.
How can these resources be made unavailable to the client partitions?
