There is also an instructor-led online version of this course: IBM BladeCenter E - Workshop - Instructor Led Online - ILO (XTV32).
This course builds on the skills gained from the BladeCenter Fundamentals Course XTR30, which focused on BladeCenter Chassis Servers,how they communicate to each other and their redundancy. ?This one day class XTR32, builds on those skills by placing emphasis on the BladeCenter E itself: its unique components, power and cooling, midplane connections and systems management. The next topic covers Systems Management by discussing the major elements that are managed, AMM monitoring capabilities and the command line functions. Next topic is on Open Fabric Manager. This important topic starts with those features that are implemented in the BladeCenter Open Fabric manager, the chassis components included in the configuration, the storage and networking definitions that can be modified, and describing the sequence of events that occus in Blade failover and recovery. The last section covers those basic questions regarding a BladeCenter E installation, power and cooling considerations, and available problem determination tools. After completion of remote labs identifying the BladeCenter environment and a review of the Advanced Management Module (AMM),you will learn by using the AMM, how to configure for blade failover and recovery using the BladeCenter Open Fabric Manager (BOFM) capabilities.
