You will configure enterprise and productivity integration, Digital Workspace
You should: Have z/OS installation experience or have attended z/OS Installation (ES41A) Be familiar with end user activities on MVS, including knowledge of JCL, IDCAMS, the MVS address space structure, and the concept of batch scheduling using JES initiators
32 Hours
This intermediate class is intended for new System Programmers and System Administrators, who require an overall understanding of the z/OS platform, z/OS components, data management, and installation and maintenance activities used in z/OS systems.
Describe the basics of z/OS architecture Identify basic components of a z/OS system Discuss what you have learned about LPARs Describe maintenance principles Identify and list the POR process Describe the IPL process Identify the basic address spaces Describe how to shut down z/OS Implement a basic JES2 batch environment Identify how work can be started in z/OS and it's relationship to the job entry subsystem Describe how JES2 prepares and executes work in z/OS Explain JES2 start options Describe JES2 parameters that can be customized to support z/OS batch Identify how communications and control of JES2 can be done using the operator commands and SDSF Describe JES3 configuration and job processing phases Identify JES3 start options Describe the two networking schemes in the z/OS environment: SNA and IP Identify SNA networking resources Explain how SNA sessions are established Describe the role of TCP/IP as a physical filesystem in UNIX System Services Implement and start a local VTAM instance to provide the base for SNA applications such as TSO Implement and start TSO Start a TCPIP stack and check accompanying messages Identify the main functions of Security Server (RACF) and the role it plays in controlling user access to the system Describe the contents of RACF user, group, and resource profiles Describe how RACF profiles are used to authorize user access to a data set resource Identify two key members used for TCAS startup Name the components of ISPF Describe the general layout of ISPF/PDF panels Describe how UNIX System Services are used in z/OS Describe briefly the UNIX Shell and utilities and how they are accessed Describe the application services provided in UNIX System Services Describe how security is handled in UNIX System Services Describe the classical z/OS data management DASD init: VTOC, VTOC index ICF catalog creation: BCS, VVDS MCAT/UCAT IDCAMS utility DFSMS: DFSMSdss, DFSMShsm Data, storage, and management classes Define the hierarchical data management HFS file system zFS file system Define load-parameters for IPL Define symbols for use in system initialization Define a configuration for system initialization Define a library for procedures Identify the sysplex resources required to run WLM List the main components that comprise a WLM service definition for a system/sysplex Describe the function of WLM service definition parameters such as workloads, service goals, periods, and WLM subsystems Describe how SMF data set are created and used Explain SMF record types and how they are used Identify the three RMF monitor types Describe how the RMF monitor is used for reporting purposes Identify System Logger components and usage for: Sysplex configuration and CF logstreams Single system and DASD-only logstreams Describe SMF usage of logstreams Describe the differences between IOCDS and IODF Identify and list the HCD definition process sequence Describe how the HCD dialogs are used to define a configuration Discuss the purpose of Hardware Configuration Manager Describe the overall concept of SMP/E: Global, target and DLIB zones Describe what elements and SYSMODs are, Systems w/TPS, Mainframe TPS, Application Platforms TPS, z Enterprise Transaction Systems & integration
