CV86: DB2 10 for z/OS Implementation Workshop

Code: CV86
Duration: 5 days


This course is for installers of DB2 9 z/OS and/or migration to DB2 10 for z/OS using the Install CLIST. You are involved in lectures that explain DB2 10 components and pointers, and the processes used to install or migrate from DB2 9 for z/OS. To reinforce the lectures, a series of labs are provided to give you hands-on experience installing DB2 9 for z/OS and migrating to DB2 10 for z/OS.

The hands-on labs include exercises to:

  • Install DB2 9 for z/OS subsystem
  • Verify with the DB2 9 sample applications
  • Perform parameter updates
  • Migrate to DB2 10 conversion mode
  • Fall back to DB2 9 for z/OS
  • Migrate again to DB2 10 conversion mode
  • Enable new function mode
  • Verify with the DB2 10 sample applications
  • Precompile option NEWFUN(V9)


After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Prepare z/OS TSO environment to run the Install CLIST
  • Provide appropriate parameters for the Install CLIST
  • Execute the Install CLIST
  • Define DB2 9 for z/OS
  • Define VSAM catalog and alias
  • Define system data sets and databases
  • Initialize system data sets and databases
  • Define DB2 9 for z/OS initialization parameters
  • Define user authorization exits
  • Record DB2 10 for z/OS data to SMF
  • Establish subsystem security
  • Verify the DB2 9 for z/OS installation
  • Update subsystem parameters
  • Create a new ZPARM
  • Migrate DB2 9 for z/OS to DB2 10 for z/OS Conversion Mode
  • Enable DB2 10 for z/OS New Function Mode
  • Verify migration


This intermediate course is for anyone responsible for maintaining, installing or migrating DB2 9 for z/OS to DB2 10 for z/OS, or installing DB2 10 for z/OS.


The following prerequisites are suggested:

  • The basic concepts and facilities of DB2
  • The basic concepts of Structured Query Language (SQL)
  • z/OS Time Sharing Option (TSO) and the z/OS interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF)
