This course is designed to give you the skill required to diagnose and debug TCP/IP problems when operating on z/OS. This skill consists in developing knowledge of commands and tools together with a methodology in tackling TCP/IP problems.
The lab activity and paper projects provide an opportunity to debug real problems.
This intermediate course is for anyone who works on TCP/IP networks and provides support in the resolution of communication problems on z/OS.
Learn what commands are useful in a z/OS environment to control TCP/IP resources, the TELNET application, and debug TCP/IP simple network problems
Learn which trace types (packet, TELNET, FTP, and so forth) are available in a z/OS environment and know:
What kind of information can be found in a trace
When to activate a trace
How to activate a trace
How to interpret a trace (for the packet trace there is a dedicated topic)
Use the proper diagnostic technique to approach TCP/IP problems
Describe the Syslog function in the UNIX environment and know how to configure the /etc/syslog.conf file
Understand how to handle and modify the translate tables used by many TCP/IP applications that connect to remote systems which use ASCII character coding
Activate and interpret several trace types, and debug some real problems which involve the use of various application protocols.
You should have:
Completed TCP/IP for z/OS Implementation Workshop (CB695)
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
