OK, this is "blowing my own trumpet" a little but I just finished a 12 minute movie on the best bits of Systems Director. Best in the sense that they "save me a lot of time" and you might like to take a look to see if they can help you too. As I run lots of POWER based machines and lots of copies of AIX, this is why it is very relevant to this AIXpert Blog. The 8 areas are:
- One Hour Install,
- Update Manager - HMC, Firmware & AIX in four mouse clicks,
Machine Performance View,
- LPAR direct to HMC,
- Active Energy save
cash & over-clocking,
- VMControl - Capture/Deploy,
- WPAR &
Versioned WPARs and
- Automation Even/Action Plans.

The biggest time saver is 2 but 8 is very difficult to judge the time saved as it does stuff for me without asking!
