System Operator for IBM i

Training name: System Operator for IBM i

Duration (in days) : 4 days

Description

This introductory course enables a new system operator to develop basic to intermediate level skills needed for day-to-day operations of the Power System with IBM i. Focus is given to using the GUI (IBM i Access Client Solutions and IBM Navigator for i) as well as 5250 emulation sessions to perform tasks including job control, monitoring, sending messages, managing systems devices, and more. Hands-on exercises reinforce the lecture topics and prepare the student to successfully operate a Power System with IBM i.

Objectives

  • Use the online help and references
  • Send, display, and reply to messages
  • Monitor and control jobs, devices, and job and output queues
  • Start and stop the system
  • Create and change user profiles
  • Use authorization lists and group profiles
  • Manage system configuration --> this could be the replacement for Manage system devices, user display stations, and printers
  • Save and restore objects, libraries, and the system
  • Monitor job and history logs
  • Diagnose a system problem
  • Order, receive, and apply PTFs
  • Perform all of these functions using a 5250 emulation session as well as IBM i Access Client Solutions and IBM Navigator for i

Audience

This course is intended for the person who has responsibility for daily system operations.

It is not intended for technical audiences who are seeking an in-depth look at how the Power System with IBM i works. This audience should instead attend the IBM i Technical Introduction (OL4AG).

PreRequisites

There are no prerequisites for this course.
