IBM Workload Scheduler Installation and Configuration (IWS/TWS/OPC)



This 3 day course will take students through the installation methods for installing IBM Workload Scheduler. This will include all configuration steps that occur while the product is enabled after the SMP/E process has been completed. Pre installation options will be explained and any changes that may be required (dependent on customer requirements). We will run through the EQQJOBS dialog to prepare your jobs for installation, and the data gathering required prior to this step being run. We will also cover the options available and any customisation that may be required after the product has been installed. This will include looking at the parameters and supplied exits used for customisation and tuning of the IWS install, including parameters required by the IWS agents.

This will be a Hands-on course, with exercise for some of the steps required for installation and configuration.
