Overview

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.

Audience

This intermediate course is primarily intended for system administrators and system analysts who are responsible for defining the automation policy that is used by System Automation for z/OS.
