SMP/E for installation & maintenance

This four-day course is a complete introduction to the use of SMP/E for installing new software and applying changes to existing software (PTFs, APARs etc.) for the z/OS environment. All the important aspects of using SMP/E are covered, including a detailed explanation of what happens 'under the covers'.

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

Intended for

Individuals with JCL knowledge who are responsible for installing and maintaining software utilising SMP/E.

Systems Programmers responsible for using SMP/E to install products and service in the z/OS environment.

Background

Attendees must be able to use TSO/ISPF (see ISPF/PDF basics), write JCL and run batch jobs (see JCL), as well as having a clear understanding of the z/OS environment (see MVS and z/OS overview).

Main topics
