z/OS UNIX System Services part 1 - concepts & facilities
This course describes and explains UNIX System Services from a technician's point of view. The principal UNIX concepts are introduced and explained, and followed by a thorough examination of USS at a conceptual level. The course goes on to describe the facilities available and explains how the MVS system environment has changed to support open system and UNIX concepts through z/OS USS.
On successful completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
- understand and use the terminology associated with UNIX
- describe basic UNIX concepts
- issue UNIX shell commands
- explain the changes that have been made to the MVS platform in order to support applications created for a UNIX environment
- identify the facilities and functions provided within USS.
