Dassault Systèmes and IBM announce the support of the IBM Power System (POWER7 processor based) server platform using AIX version 6.1.
This support is effective immediately for the following list of products:
IBM Power System (POWER7 processor based) Server support requires the following minimum software levels:
-November 2008 XL C++ Runtime for AIX
-May 2009 PTF for XL Fortran Runtime for AIX
-Fileset: Java6. 126.96.36.199
Database and Application Server level may depend on the V6 Release targeted. Refer to the Program Directory of targeted V6 Product level.
Certification of the IBM Power System (POWER7 processor based) Server has been run for V6R2010X using the above Software prerequisites installed on the following hardware configuration:
-Processor Type: PowerPC_POWER7
-Number Of Processors: 12
-Processor Clock Speed: 3300 MHz
-CPU Type: 64-bit
-Kernel Type: 64-bit
-RAM: 16 GB
For certification purpose, 4 partitions were used
-1.5 shared processors uncapped
-Active memory expansion factor: 1.6
This architecture was used for certification purpose and is not mandatory.
IBM Power System server does not support 3D Graphic adapters, thus an X Server using the Virtual Frame Buffer technology (XVFB) has to be configured.
The XVFB technology requires installation of the following filesets:
Those filesets could be found on the AIX 6.1 installation media.
To start the X Server with the XVFB and proper extensions:
export LDR_CNTRL=MAXDATA=0x50000000; /usr/bin/X11/X -force -vfb -x abx -x dbe -x GLX :0 >/dev/null
To restart the X Server automatically at the next reboot, add an entry to the /etc/inittab file:
mkitab "xvfb:2:respawn:export LDR_CNTRL=MAXDATA=0x50000000; /usr/bin/X11/X -force -vfb -x abx -x dbe -x GLX :0 >/dev/null"
Installation and configuration of the XVFB requires root authority.
