- PowerVS: AIX for £2/day – AIX Open Source Toolsby Nigel Griffiths on 2021-06-16 at 10:51
Your PowerVC AIX image comes with yum installed and configured to use the AIX Open Source Toolbox (also called the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications) – 100’s of popular tools, application and commands, ready to install in seconds. Nigel works through expanding the /var and /opt filesystems, installing and updating and tracking down where the code ends up and how to get that in your $PATH so it is easy to use.Find the list of tools here:https:///www.ibm.com/support/pages/aix-toolbox-linux-applications-downloads-alphaSome of my favourites (remember I am a programmer at heart), in not particular order:curl, GCC-C ( the C compiler), Go, gzip, httpd (Apache), logrotate, Nginx, PostgreSQL RDBMS, Python, Samba, TightVNC, vim and wget plus zip/unzip/gzip.For help, hints and making suggestions use the AIX Discussionhttps://community.ibm.com/community/user/power/communities/community-home/digestviewer?communitykey=10c1d831-47ee-4d92-a138-b03f7896f7c9&tab=digestviewerAlso a quick mention of the power-devops.com team that offer some more AIX open source tools like InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana plus Prometheus, Ansible AWX.

- PowerVS: AIX for £2/day – Create VM & Networkingby Nigel Griffiths on 2021-06-10 at 19:45
Hands-On watch NigelCreate a small AIX Virtual Machine with Internet access (public network) and a ssh public key. Then start up the VM (automatically happens). Then access the console using the root user to set the root password.Finally, access the Virtual Machine via ssh across the Internet.Note: from minute 6 to minute 8 there is not much happening as the Virtual Server Instance is built. If deliberately did not remove time from the video, so it shows the real time. OK , did cut some time when I was think, what to do next but not during the VM build. 🙂
