Dear magasem

really it depends on what system you might have, but generally speaking you should be able to manage the following:

1- AIX installation and maintenance and all the required upgrading.
2- configuring and adding any new hardware or any type of peripherals to your system and monitor their working status.
3- monitoring the system performance during peak hours and suggest and recommend upgrading if bottlenecks occurs.
4- storage management and monitoring the resources' usage periodically.
5- the most important, backing up the overall VG's and the ability to restore if required.

and many more depending on what your system is doing.
