Basic commands of AIX

HI Friends,

The following commands should be handy for AIX servers

In AIX 5.2, the 32-bit kernel is installed by default. In AIX 5.3, the 64-bit kernel is installed on 64-bit hardware and the 32-bit kernel is installed on 32-bit hardware by default.


How would I know if my System p machine (hardware) is 32-bit or 64-bit?

To display if the hardware is 32-bit or 64-bit, type:

#bootinfo -y


To display the number of hard disks on your system, type:

#lspv

How do I list information about a specific physical volume?

To find details about hdisk1, for example, run the following command:

#lspv hdisk1

How do I get a detailed configuration of my system?

Type the following:

#lscfg

The uname command provides details about your system.

#uname -p
