Short Summary

Learn how to create policy definitions for systems, applications, application groups, and monitor resources for IBM System Automation for z/OS V4.1

Duration in Hours ⌚

40.0

Content Description

In this course, you learn how to define automation policy for IBM System Automation for z/OS® (SA z/OS).

You learn how to create policy definitions for systems, applications, application groups, and monitor resources.  This  is delivered in an environment with multiple opportunities for hands-on lab exercises.  You define automation policy for several environments: single system and multiple system within a basic sysplex.  The System Automation for z/OS automation manager and automation agent run in a z/OS 2.2 environment.  The automation platform, Tivoli® NetView for z/OS is at version 6 release 2.

Objectives

  • System Automation for z/OS overview
  • Installation and customization
  • Customization Dialog and Policy Data Base
  • Defining Applications and building automation configuration files
  • Additional customization: explore features and functions including use of symbolics in the policy, Application classes, suspend file, Notify Operators, Service Periods, Events, Triggers, and monitor resources
  • Initialization and runmodes
  • Gateways and Status Display Facility
  • Defining Application Groups
  • End-to-end automation: extend automation to cross-sysplex and to true end-to-end cross platform automation. Use the Universal Automation Adapter to automate resources on distributed systems, for instance running on Linux
  • Performance-based automation with OMEGAMON
  • Migration and coexistence with previous releases of SA z/OS
