AIX NIM Client

This page shows you how to add a standalone client to the NIM environment, and how to reset and remove it again. This is mostly done through smitty.

AIX NIM Client Add

smitty nim

  • Perform NIM Administration Tasks
    • Manage Machines
      • Define a Machine (smit fastpath: smit nim_mkmac) Fill in the hostname the NIM server can resolve! If not, NIM will create a new network or disply other miscellaneous errors.
    • NOTE: without proper DNS A and PTR records the NFS mount will fail
      aixnimclientadd.jpg = AIX NIM Client Reset In case the client has a running operation or something like that you'll first have to reset the state of the specific machine: smitty nim * Perform NIM Administration Tasks
      Manage Machines
      • Perform Operations on Machines Select the machine you want to reset and press ENTER and select the reset operation:

Commandline

Or use this command:

bash-3.2# nim -o reset lpar01

AIX NIM Client Remove

Now you can remove the machine: smitty nim

  • Perform NIM Administration Tasks
    • Manage Machines
      • Remove a Machine Select the machine you're trying to remove and confirm (couple of times).
