I was recently asked how to remove a static route from the AIX Object Data Manager (ODM), so I pointed my customer to this techdoc.

This great new techdoc from Steve Knudson recently went live. It includes a set of slides that cover Ethernet on POWER, along with a cheat sheet that you may find valuable as you transition to 10G adapters on POWER8 servers.

In February I wrote about disabling live partition mobility on selected partitions, and recently I received a related question from someone looking for an alternative to using the HMC GUI. Specifically, how do you turn LPM on and off from the command line on a per partition basis?

As long time readers know, I work with Boy Scouts. Recently we took 19 boys to a week-long summer camp, and while I always find being around kids to be instructive, this time I realized that some of these lessons apply to techies as well as campers.
