Book Now - 1 Delivery Method Available:Classroom Virtual Classroom Private Group - Virtual Self-Paced Online
This course is based on z/OS Version 1 Release 7 and provides the participant with an overview of UNIX Services in a z/OS system. It concentrates on the non-UNIX facilities available in z/OS to perform UNIX type work.
At the end of the course the delegate will be able to perform the following activities:
- Use TSO ISHELL to create and view UNIX files and directories, perform data transfer between z/OS data sets and UNIX files.
- Use TSO commands to create and view UNIX files and directories, perform data transfer between z/OS data sets and UNIX files.
- Use UNIX commands to create and view UNIX files and directories, perform data transfer between z/OS data sets and UNIX files.
- Use JCL to perform batch functions running UNIX shell scripts. Set up UNIX Services on z/OS.
- Monitor and control UNIX on z/OS.
- Set up and maintain HFS and zFS file systems in both a single system and in a shared HFS within a SYSPLEX.
- Set up and administer UNIX users.
