Product Description

This book was written for the UNIX professional that must learn to work and manage in an AIX system environment. The author uses both AT&T and Berkeley UNIX as the basis for the book. Review

IBM's AIX (Advanced Interactive Executive) is close enough to other popular flavors of Unix, but the differences can be confounding. Unix users tackling the AIX operating system for the first time can turn toward this guide to make the transition as smooth as possible.

AIX for Unix Professionals starts quite naturally on the boot-up process of AIX and then discusses the details of Object Data Manager (ODM), its object-oriented repository for system data. Next, the book covers the System Management Interface Tools (SMIT)--the basic system-configuration and management tools that administrators use to set up the operating system. Just like Unix, these small and discrete utilities require command-line arguments, which are illustrated here with small, effective sample commands.

The text covers the basics of configuring hardware devices, including disk drives, printers, and serial ports and offers a quick tour of the AIX file system. Material on networking and adding new users to a system follows. The book concludes with some tips for gauging and improving system performance in AIX, as well as a troubleshooting guide.

Written in a no-nonsense style and filled with some useful tips, this title provides all the basics of the AIX operating system in a concise format. This title is ideal for the reasonably experienced Unix administrator. --Richard Dragan
