Parallel Sysplex for Operators

Mainframe Training Overview

The course will concentrate on the operations aspects of a Parallel Sysplex. In addition the student will learn about new operator functions, Sysplex components, and Sysplex operation and recovery considerations. Format of class is lecture only.

Mainframe Training Audience

Course is designed for Computer Operators to manage a Parallel Sysplex. It will include recovery procedures for subsystems, as well as what procedures to follow when coupling facility rebuild is required.

Mainframe Training Prerequisites

Basic understanding of the z/OS Operating System, CICS/DB2/VTAM/ MVS/JES2 Commands. Working knowledge of the Hardware Master Console.
