DFSMS Implementation (SS84G)

This course provides the skills required to plan and implement Data Facility Storage Management Subsystem (DFSMS). A step-by-step implementation strategy, emphasizing coexistence considerations, is reinforced by hands-on labs. In the hands-on labs, students will be creating constructs as well as coding ACS routines. This milestone approach includes managing temporary and permanent data sets. The course also discusses exploitation of functions provided by DFSMS as the installation evolves to the DFSMS environment.
Before taking this course, students should have taken an Introduction to Data Storage Subsystems course or a Storage Management Fundamentals course. Equivalent knowledge may be substituted for these courses. It is recommended that the student have programming experience which will aid in the writing of the ACS routines.
