Course Description

Db2 12 for z/OS Introduction to System Administration Training is designed to introduce professionals to the knowledge and skills required to administer a Db2 12 for z/OS system.

This technical course teaches individuals techniques to start and stop a Db2 system and utilize the SET SYSPARM command.

You will learn to enter the system log to collect information regarding subsystem operation, initialization, or shutdown and demonstrate the address space structure and components of a Db2 subsystem.

This program is suitable for system administrators and database administrators who want to boost their credibility.

By the end of the course, you will learn to elaborate the use of RACF and the function of roles and trusted contexts, operate with the active log data sets, and apply security methods for a Db2 subsystem.
