Uptime requirements of 99.99 percent (or higher) are now common.Notice that neither a POR nor an IPL are required using the Dynamic I/O method: To add a device with Dynamic I/O: The new device is added after Step 4.Steps 5 and 6 are housekeeping steps and are often overlooked, causing problems later (i.e., a POR or IPL backs out the added device).The implementation of an operating system either in an existing IT environment or as a completely new rollout must be carefully prepared.At the beginning of the planning process, you should try to define the project goals and necessary features.
