Level
Total time

Description

Prerequisites:

Delegates should be familiar with z/OS, TSO and JCL.

Course Description:

This course is based on z/OS Version 1 Release 7 and provides the participant with an overview of UNIX Services in a z/OS system. It concentrates on the non-UNIX facilities available in z/OS to perform UNIX type work.

At the end of the course the delegate will be able to perform the following activities:

  • Use TSO ISHELL to create and view UNIX files and directories, perform data transfer between z/OS data sets and UNIX files.
  • Use TSO commands to create and view UNIX files and directories, perform data transfer between z/OS data sets and UNIX files.
  • Use UNIX commands to create and view UNIX files and directo…
