TCP/IP Diagnostic and Problem Determination Techniques for the z/OS Environment
Duration: 3 Days
This course is for seasoned System Programmers and Analysts and unashamedly designed to challenge them. They leave the class competent and confident to analyze, diagnose and resolve TCP/IP problems in z/OS networks.
Others taking the course, with appropriate levels of aptitude and open minds, may also benefit, but should not be expected to reach the same standard.
The class is divided into three broad segments. The first reviews the material in lower-level classes about the concepts, principles and terminology behind TCP/ IP and its implementation under z/OS. To this is appended a detailed discussion of TCP/IP message formats.
The second segment presents the operator commands and procedures used for monitoring and controlling network conditions and for gathering diagnostic information. For in-house classes, this part can be customized to include the specific management applications the client uses.
The last segment of the course covers the tools and procedures for problem resolution. Wherever possible the instructor will make reference to the client's current and anticipated hardware and software configurations.
The key to the success of this class is the assisted practice with diagnostic captures of actual cases.

What You Can Expect
At the end of this course, delegates will be able to:
Who Should Take This Course
This course is for z/OS Communications Systems Programmers and Analysts who will diagnose problems in a z/OS Communication Server TCP/IP network.
Ideally, attendees will have experience in traditional System Programming skills, but more important still are enjoyment of problem-solving and a determination to succeed.
To do the standard class as designed, each attendee will need access to a workstation with a current version of Wireshark installed
The class is led by an instructor in person or by webcast from a coursebook that delegates receive in advance. The coursebook incorporates paper exercises and examples. Additionally, machine-readable files are distributed for the practical exercises*.
Significantly better value is achievable, however, if delegates can be coached through custom tasks hands-on in their own estates, using the real-life tooling.
