The course is designed to gain a clear technical insight into the workings and implementation of a parallel sysplex in the z/OS environment.
This class is designed for system programmers and support staff involved in setting up and running a parallel sysplex environment.
To gain maximum benefit from this class, students should have a thorough understanding of the principles and mechanics of the parallel sysplex environment.
Course Objectives:Identify the different stages of parallel sysplex implementation, and understand the benefits and implications of implementing each of these stages
Plan and implement an appropriate hardware configuration for their intended sysplex, including the coupling facility, CTC and sysplex timer environments
Set up a cloned, multi-system, shared SYSRES environment with appropriate SYS1.PARMLIB parameters (and a suitable backup SYSRES!)
Set up and maintain the controls for the basic sysplex environment, including the couple datasets, signalling environment, sysplex timer, GRS and parmlib member controls
Set up and maintain the CFRM environment
Set up and maintain the system logger environment
Interpret the various RMF reports associated with the sysplex environment
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
