This is an intermediate course for system administrators, database administrators, and other technical individuals, who manage and implement DB2 10 for z/OS and for z/OS application developers.
- You should have:
- An understanding of the objects (tables, indexes, databases, and so forth) used in DB2 systems, and of how those objects are created, managed, and recovered. These skills can be developed by taking the DB2 Database Administration Workshop Part 1 (CV83).
- A working knowledge of SQL. The SQL Workshop (CE12) provides this.
- At least one year as a z/OS systems programmer or equivalent experience or, one year working with DB2 on the mainframe as a DBA on the mainframe or equivalent experience
Classroom and hands on lab exercises.
