This course is intended for system programmers and subsystem administrators responsible for installing and implementing z/OS V2.1 in their enterprise.
Knowledge of z/OS at the level of a z/OS system programmer, acquired on the job or through the z/OS curriculum. Warning: This class only covers changes packaged in z/OS V2.2 and expects students to be familiar with the contents of the z/OS V2R1 and previous system upgrades. For students who have knowledge or experience based on lower levels of z/OS, you should first attend: ESC5: z/OS V1R12 to z/OS V1R13 Update (which brings skill level up to z/OS V1R13) ESC6: z/OS V1R13 to z/OS V2R1 Update (which brings skill level up to z/OS V2R1)
This course is designed to teach students the new features and enhanced functions provided in z/OS Version 2 Release 2. The software updates and enhancements for z/OS V2R2 are presented in groups based on closely associated z/OS components. The groups include enhancements to the base control program, sysplex features, UNIX System Services, the data storage subsystem, Communications Server, and security components, such as RACF. Finally, the installation and migration issues relating to installation of z/OS V2.2 are discussed, as well as the z/OS V2.2 exploitation of some of the unique features of the IBM system z13..
