System Automation for z/OS V3.5 delivered APAR OA49939 that provides a best practices sample policy for z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition. The best practices policy allows you to quickly create the necessary System Automation resources for the Angel and the z/OS Connect EE server address spaces including the relationships between the two without having to worry about the details yourself. Once created, the new resources can be be automatically started on IPL, shutdown for maintenance activities, but also individually operated using the System Automation user interface. And if that is not sufficient for your particular installation, you can easily expand the level of monitoring and automation by leveraging System Automation's job log monitoring capability watching for particular messages or System Automation's application groups to create redundant copies of resources for high availabilility.
