Question 1

How are console log messages recorded by AIX?



Answer : B

AIX provides the syslog service to record console log messages. The syslog service is used to control the logging of system messages and can be used to record and store the log messages in different formats. The syslog service is enabled through the use of the alog and errdemon commands. The alog command is used to view the log messages that are stored in the /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log file, while the errdemon command is used to control the logging of system messages.

Question 2
Question 3

The lspv and Iquerypv commands show a different PVID for an hdisk. How is this possible?



Answer : A

The lspv command displays information about physical volumes on the system, and it retrieves the information from the Object Data Manager (ODM). The ODM is the database that stores information about the system's hardware configuration, including the PVID of each disk. The Iquerypv command directly queries the disk for its PVID, and is therefore able to display the correct PVID. Reference: IBM AIX v7 Administrator Specialty Study Guide, page 546.


Question 4

An administrator finds that their development server has crashed and an error code 554 is displayed. They know that this error is typically associated with a problem executing varyon rootvg and they should boot from AIX Media to be able to perform maintenance tasks. When the administrator checks the crontab of the NIM server, they find that a mksysb image is created each night.

Can the administrator use this mlcsysb to boot the server and perform the required maintenance tasks?



Answer : A

A mksysb image is a snapshot of the AIX operating system and its configuration, so it can be used to boot the server and perform the required maintenance tasks. However, in order to use the mksysb image, the administrator may need to create a machine resource in the NIM environment first. According to the IBM AIX v7 Administrator Specialty Study Guide (page 13-6), the mksysb image should be used in combination with a previously created machine resource, which defines the parameters for the installation.


Question 5

An AIX system is defined as a NIM client with -a connect=shell. The client system is up and running. The client can ping the NIM master, and the master can ping the client. The administrator of the NIM master system attempts to use NIM to install software updates on the NIM client, but receives the error message Permission denied.

What can the administrator of the AIX NIM client do to help resolve the problem?



Question 6

Which user account is always UID 0 on AIX?



Answer : B

The root account is the special user in the/etc/passwdfile with the user ID (UID) of0and is commonly given the user name,root. It is not the user name that makes the root account so special, but the UID value of0. This means that any user that has a UID of0also has the same privileges as the root user. Also, the root account is always authenticated by means of the local security files.

Question 7

A system administrator has noticed that static routes are missing after rebooting a system. What is the most likely reason for this?



Answer : C

The administrator has failed to run the cfgmgr command before rebooting the systems. Running the cfgmgr command before rebooting a system is important, as it ensures that any changes made to the configuration are written to the system, otherwise the changes may be lost when the system is rebooted. Other commands such as chdev and route add are not related to this issue and will not solve the problem.

For more information on the cfgmgr command, please refer to the IBM AIX v7 Administrator Specialty Study Guide, page 10-7. The guide can be found here: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/ssw_aix_72/cfgmgmt/cfgmgr_command.htm.
