Getting Started
Written by Michael Felt   

So, it starts. I had actually been waiting for something of an inspiration before starting a blog. And I am still a bit uncertain about what a blog is supposed to be. But in as much as it is a way for me to keep you posted on what I am doing around rootvg and AIX - now is as good a time as any to see where it takes us.

The current project is look into WPAR in AIX 6.1 and see what is working for me, and what is not. What I want to setup is, roughly, the following:

4 System Partitions in two Power5 system LPAR's

A seperate LPAR as WPAR manager

Create both System and Application WPAR's using the WPAR manager

Use the following applications in WPARs: Apache, DB2, mySQL, WebSphere

Note: I am not familiar with some of these (guess which ones Innocent) so part of my coming blog entries will be stumbling over these applications - or maybe not - as well.
