This course is designed to provide the SMP/E skills needed in the installation and maintenance of optional features and maintenance in the z/OS operating environment. You are taught to define the SMP/E database and invoke SMP/E to add, modify, or replace system elements. The course includes extensive hands-on labs using a current level of SMP/E.

You will get practical experience in the SMP/E tasks involved in installing a z/OS product. Emphasis is on interpreting results of SMP/E processing. SMP/E concepts examined in this course include modification control statements, the consolidated software inventory, zone structure, and error analysis. SMP/E commands such as RECEIVE, APPLY, ACCEPT, RESTORE, REPORT, and LIST are discussed.

You will also learn how to perform automated SMP/E delivery of z/OS and product maintenance over the Internet with an automated SMP/E process that downloads and installs IBM preventive and corrective service over the Internet

Objectifs

  • Describe how SMP/E is used as a tool for system maintenance
  • Interpret modification control statements in a sample SYSMOD
  • Create a consolidated software inventory database to support installation and maintenance requirements
  • Use the SMP/E dialogs to install a product and its related service
  • Manage exception SYSMOD data
  • Describe the use of the primary and secondary data sets required by SMP/E
  • Analyze output from SMP/E processing and resolve commonly encountered problems
  • Describe the use of the REPORT command to determine software dependencies between zones
