On successful completion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • plan the installation and implementation of USS
  • implement USS
  • customisze USS
  • maintain the HFS environment
  • describe the constraints on USS
  • apply RACF security to the environment
  • manage a USS environment.

Steps to install UNIX; modes of running z/OS UNIX; minimum, sockets-only and maximum mode; overview of security preparations; create root file system; controlling services with BPXPRMxx parmlib member; JCL procedures; BPXOINIT and BPXAS; starting UNIX services; initial file system structure.

  • z/FS file systems

z/FS File System Aggregates; z/FS parameter file; zfsadm shell command; zFS commands & utilities; zFS Colony Address Space; allocating zFS Aggregates; formatting zFS Aggregates; attaching zFS Aggregates; mounting zFS file systems.

  • Hierarchical File Systems - HFS
