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.
