Learn to work with the Hardware Configuration Definition (HCD) function for z/OS, and to plan and initiate dynamic reconfiguration of your zSeries hardware environment. Learn to use the HCD dialogs of z/OS to create an Input/Output (I/O) configuration and dynamically alter the I/O configuration. Learn about the creation of an I/O Configuration Dataset (IOCDS) and various reports that HCD can build. Use a z/OS system to reinforce lecture topics and to practice working with the HCD dialogs. Hands-on lab projects may be done in teams depending on the number of attendees and location.
This is an intermediate course for individuals who maintain the I/O configuration contained in the I/O Definition Files (IODF) and IOCDS for their z/OS installation.
Upon completing this course, students will be able to:
You should complete:
or have basic knowledge of z/OS and I/O Configuration and familiarity with logging on to Time Sharing Option (TSO) and using Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF).
