This course is designed to provide the SMP/E skills needed in the installation and maintenance of optional features and maintenance in the z/OS operating environment. You are taught to define the SMP/E database and invoke SMP/E to add, modify, or replace system elements. The course includes extensive hands-on labs using a current level of SMP/E.

You will get practical experience in the SMP/E tasks involved in installing a z/OS product. Emphasis is on interpreting results of SMP/E processing. SMP/E concepts examined in this course include modification control statements, the consolidated software inventory, zone structure, and error analysis. SMP/E commands such as RECEIVE, APPLY, ACCEPT, RESTORE, REPORT, and LIST are discussed.

You will also learn how to perform automated SMP/E delivery of z/OS and product maintenance over the Internet with an automated SMP/E process that downloads and installs IBM preventive and corrective service over the Internet.


On Completion, Delegates will be able to

Describe how SMP/E is used as a tool for system maintenance

Interpret modification control statements in a sample SYSMOD

Create a consolidated software inventory database to support installation and maintenance requirements

Use the SMP/E dialogs to install a product and its related service

Manage exception SYSMOD data

Describe the use of the primary and secondary data sets required by SMP/E

Analyze output from SMP/E processing and resolve commonly encountered problems

Describe the use of the REPORT command to determine software dependencies between zones

Use the BUILDMCS process to create a function SYSMOD from an installed product and its service

Use the new SMP/E functions to install software service automatically over the internet o Implement support for communication server FTP client o Use the new RECEIVE ORDER command to order and install z/OS maintenance automatically over the Internet


Who Should Attend

This basic course is for system programmers with no prior SMP experience who plan to use SMP/E for system and subsystem maintenance and installation.
