RE: Power AIX certifications



fixed

The technical sales certification has replaced what used to be the designer
and implementer tests. Yes it is very technical and aimed at the technical
sale support person, who by definition has significant technical skills.
Take a gander at the test objectives for the current test and you'll get a
comfort level for it.

Just to verify a Technical 'Sales' cert will work? I realize it does say
technical also but I figured that would mean things like they know to sell
you part Y if they are selling you part X. Would this cert mean they would
know how to check the cache battery status? How to use AIX's version of
STRSST to add disks? How to add new disks to different partitions?
(Apparently, much like people often put Windows on C: and data on some other
drive there's some similarity in Linux and AIX.) Failure of these 3 basic
things is the major factor in leaving Linux for AIX.
That, and a different consultant installed TSM on AIX in Auburn IN the week
before coming here and installing TSM on Linux. It took him a day less at
the company in Auburn because AIX came with all necessary drivers and
whatnot. A day of consultant time easily pays for AIX.

Rob:

You would like to see the Tivoli cert for TSM but also the Technical Sales
(at V7R1 it will be the base test plus the AIX variant) as well.

If they have those, I'd trust 'em.

If you were looking to contract someone for Power AIX install what
certifications would you look for?
And either this person or one of their colleagues will be resetting up TSM
(Tivoli Storage Manager). What certifications would you be look for
there?
I've had some extremely bad experience with Power Suse Linux, hence the
conversion to AIX.
