Course Description


Overview

This course introduces the system programmer to the tasks required to support a z/VM operating system. It provides an overview of the processes required to install z/VM and perform the required tailoring steps to support guest operating system virtual machines and CMS users. The students will leave the course with the knowledge to perform the steps to add guest systems and other virtual machines to the z/VM system, to apply service to the z/VM system, and to define a minimal TCP/IP configuration. Additionally this course is designed to teach the implementation of SUSE Linux on System z.  

Audience

This course is intended for IT professionals who will be responsible for the support of guests and other virtual machines running in the z/VM environment. It assumes that these persons will have little or no experience in the z/VM environment. Additionally anyone responsible for installing, customizing, and maintaining Linux on System z.
