AIX is an open operating system from IBM that employs a scalable UNIX platform. AIX runs across the range of RS/6000 systems and was designed for IBM's System/390 or large server hardware platforms. AIX 5.1 is intended to handle increased internet usage from networks as well as greater demands for network security. The IBM AIX 5.1 for Administrators test covers administration commands used in the maintenance and management of AIX systems. The topical areas addressed within the test include AIX communications, AIX/UNIX architecture, system commands, utilities, and administration. The content is intended to measure the test taker’s knowledge base of the IBM AIX 5.1 operating system. This assessment is appropriate to administer to someone that has some prior knowledge and hands-on experience with AIX.
