This new, 4-day course is the first part of the definitive z/OS Communications Server training programmer. It is an essential requirement for all personnel working in or with an SNA (APPN and SubArea) network. This in-depth course introduces and explains the concepts, terminology and configuration of SNA, VTAM and APPN. Emphasis is placed upon, but is not limited to, VTAM implementations of SNA in both an APPN and SubArea Network. Additionally, APPC is explained in detail. The course also teaches how to define the network in order to optimize response time and throughput, especially in a Parallel Sysplex.
Please note that this is a highly practical course where each student will have their own VTAM/APPN Network.
A knowledge of z/OS concepts. A basic understanding of network concepts would be helpful but is not mandatory
This updated, four-day course is the second part of the definitive z/OS Communications Server training programming. This course explains in detail how TCP/IP works in a z/OS environment. Installation, profile definition and implementation are all taught in depth. All versions of TCP/IP for z/OS are covered, along with all the servers. Additionally, all the essential and important configuration options are explained and examples are provided.
Attendance on the courses TCP/IP Fundamentals[CTCP] and z/OS Communications Server Part 1 - SNA & VTAM [VTAN] or equivalent experience. A familiarity with UNIX is also required and some z/OS systems programming experience would be an advantage, but is not essential
This one-day intensive course, an explanation of how the connections work and how all the data is logged in SYSLOGD. During the course covers the setting up and testing of SSHD and SFTP in z/OS.
On completion attendees will be able to:
A sound grasp of TCP/IP in a z/OS environment is essential. An understanding of both RACF and RESOLVER is also required.
This comprehensive ten-day 'Boot Camp' course provides attendees with an accelerated learning approach to networks in a z/OS environment. The course is ideal for anyone new to mainframe networks. The course comprehensively covers SNA, VTAM, TCP/IP and also provides vital information on mainframe network security
An understanding of the z/OS environment
