The Open Program for IBM Tivoli System Automation started.
We are developing the next version of our products:
In the Open Program, we are going to show you selected features and improvements that we intend to include in future releases of SA AppMan and SA MP. We are looking forward to discuss these features and improvements with you and receive your feedback.
You have the chance to participate in this new development and
influence during the Open Program for IBM Tivoli System Automation
This self-paced audio-visual course provides an overview of the System Automation for z/OS 3.4 functional differences as they relate to implementation and administration. This is is the first of three courses in a set of courses that cover implementation and administration differences. The other two courses provide demonstrations and additional details on specific topics. The functional differences associated with operational commands are covered in a separate set of courses.
A new developerWorks article has been published, which helps Tivoli System Automation users get up and running. This new Getting Started Guide was written by Frank Goytisolo, an IBM IT Specialist who has spent several years working with Tivoli System Automation for High Availability (TSA).
Here is an excerpt from the overview:
The purpose of this guide is to introduce Tivoli® System Automation for Multiplatforms and provide a quick-start, purpose-driven approach to users that need to use the software, but have little or no past experience with it.
This guide describes the role that TSA plays within IBM’s Smart Analytics System solution and the commands that can be used to manipulate the application. Further, some basic problem diagnosis techniques will be discussed, which may help with minor issues that could be experienced during regular use.
When the Smart Analytics system is built with High Availability, TSA is automatically installed and configured by the ATK. Therefore, this guide will not describe how to install or configure a TSA cluster (domain) from scratch, but rather how to manipulate and work with an existing environment. To learn to define a cluster of servers, please refer to the References appendix for IBM courses that are available.
