AIX POWERHA/HACMP: Basic commands

POWERHA/HACMP: Basic commands

# IBM PowerHA (formerly HACMP) is IBM's solution for high-availability clusters on the AIX
# Unix and Linux for IBM System p platforms and stands for High Availability Cluster
# Multiprocessing.

# PowerHA can run on up to 32 computers or nodes, each of which is either actively running
# an application (active) or waiting to take over when another node fails (passive). Data
# on file systems can be shared between systems in the cluster.

# - PowerHA 7.1 was released in 2010 and uses the Cluster Aware AIX (CAA) infrastructure
#   available in AIX V6.1 TL 6 and AIX 7.1
# - PowerHA 6.1, Rebranded again to IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX, GA Oct 27 2009
# - HACMP 5.5, Rebranded to IBM PowerHA, GA Nov 2008
# - HACMP 5.4.1, Nov 2007
# - HACMP 5.4, July 2006
# - HACMP 5.3, August 2005
