I did also specify the TSM certs as well.

Yeah the tech Sales cert isn't enough. It is more as you describe, the
ability to understand what pieces are needed, what features to order, what
hardware/software is supported. I doubt a sales cert /* only */ guy is
likely to know where to find a cache battery status or put drives into a
RAID set or expand a file system.

The TSM cert though, different animal!

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.
