This course is developed for systems programmers working on an implementation of a Parallel Sysplex. It covers the details of z/OS and z/OS-related products and subsystems exploiting the Parallel Sysplex components. It is focused on the resource sharing side.
Experience in the following areas is recommended: Installing and testing z/OS and related products HCD coding PARMLIB settings
This intermediate course should include system and subsystem programmers and personnel responsible for the implementation of the hardware and software for a Parallel Sysplex.
Understand the steps to implement a basic and full Parallel Sysplex Implement a basic sysplex Implement a multisystem base sysplex Implement the connectivity for a Parallel Sysplex Implement the features and functions of a Parallel Sysplex Implement the coupling facility key exploiters Understand the different recovery scenarios
