Duration 5 Days

IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS offers an extensive set of tools for managing and maintaining complex, multivendor, multiplatform networks and systems from a single point of control. The NetView for z/OS curriculum consists of four courses. Students can tailor their training by taking one or more of the following courses:

  • IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS 6.1 Fundamentals (TZ203GB), where you learn the key concepts, components, and user interfaces associated with NetView for z/OS 6.1
  • IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS 6.1 Automation (TZ213GB), which covers the automation facilities of IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS
  • IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS 6.1 REXX (TZ223GB), where you learn how to write REXX EXECs using NetView for z/OS
  • IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS 6.1 PIPEs (TZ233GB), where you learn how to code NetView PIPEs within REXX EXECs to simplify operations and perform automation by using NetView for z/OS

This course combines the content from all four of these courses, thus providing comprehensive training for Tivoli NetView for z/OS version 6.1. It covers basic concepts, components, user interfaces, automation facilities, REXX, and PIPEs. Instructor-led discussions are reinforced with practical, hands-on lab exercises.
