If you are enrolling in a Self Paced Virtual Classroom or Web Based Training course, before you enroll, please review the Self-Paced Virtual Classes and Web-Based Training Classes on our Terms and Conditions page, as well as the system requirements, to ensure that your system meets the minimum requirements for this course.

This course is designed to provide you with the skills required to install and customize z/OS UNIX (full name z/OS UNIX System Services), and to manage and monitor the z/OS UNIX environment.


  • Execute the tasks required to prepare a z/OS installation for implementing z/OS UNIX
  • Execute the tasks to install the z/OS UNIX software features
  • Use the information provided in this class to perform the basic customization necessary to fully implement the z/OS UNIX kernel, the file system, the shell and utilities, and z/OS UNIX applications
  • Put in place the RACF security required for z/OS UNIX resources and applications
  • Make appropriate definitions for the activation of TCP/IP sockets by z/OS UNIX
  • Identify and use the processes and data required for monitoring and tuning the z/OS UNIX environment


This is an intermediate course for experienced data professionals such as z/OS system programmers, who are responsible for the installation and maintenance of z/OS UNIX.


You should have:

  • A basic knowledge of z/OS UNIX as provided in the course Introducing z/OS UNIX Services (OP05), and the skills normally required to install a z/OS product using SMP/E and batch jobs to update system data sets. RACF knowledge is useful.
