This IBM Redpaper provides detailed how-to instructions for creating a virtualized environment for the provisioning of 3-tiered composite applications using IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager V3.1 with the help of a 13-step walk through of the activities required to reach your goal.

In addition, descriptions of the Tivoli Provisioning Manager V3.1 software model is provided.

This material is intended for IT professionals who specialize in deployment of systems, middleware, and application software to support on-demand production environments. A basic understanding of networking, clustering techniques, and the functions and features of Tivoli Provisioning Manager V3.1 will greatly increase the benefits of studying this material.

This IBM Redpaper is based on material that was originally developed for a instructor-led workshop. However, it is the hope of the IBM International Technical Support Organization that publishing the material to a wider audience will be helpful and provide guidance on the functions and use of Tivoli Provisioning Manager V3.1, despite the workshop environment not being available.
