Title: AIX installation - Working with NIM
Post by: Michael on March 07, 2011, 07:27:54 AM
I finally got an article on Installing NIM finished. This was only the third time I wrote it - the first two versions were "stolen" together with the laptop I had written it on.

Bad luck all round - because installing an alarm and barbed wire fench to convince the buglars that my house was no longer such an easy target ended in a back hernia for myself.

Anyway, moving forward now - I have worked through the NIM article and I think I have most of the typo's worked out. It became a lot longer than I expected - AND - rather than use graphics for screen shots I tried formatting them all in courier font so you could cut/paste commands - easier than having to type them yourselves.

NIM is very important these days. Nearly every customer I visit asks me to help them get started - so I hope to have a solid basis for you, as well as future and past customers.

If you find a typo - PLEASE - comment here so I can get that corrected.

I have a few more ideas that I want to get worked out regarding NIM. In particular, I'll be going back to looking at HOWTO use SUMA to update an lpp_source to a new TL.

Reformated parts of the article - and it is multi-page.
AND - new for me - I added a flash film of a live - hands-free install using nim.

Do take a look to the article (again)!
