Describes how to download IBM® Tivoli® Workload Scheduler, and the Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS Agent, Versions 8.5.1, using the Passport Advantage® Online Web site.
IBM Tivoli Workload Automation is a set of products provided by IBM to automate all workload management tasks. Tivoli Workload Scheduler is the base product (engine) that helps you automate, plan, and control every phase of your workload production on UNIX®, Linux®, and Windows® platforms.
Tivoli Workload Scheduler is fully functional using its built-in commands. However, you can also use either or both of the following graphical user interfaces to perform most of the engine functions:
|Dynamic Workload Console||Install this to perform scheduling object database management, plan management, workload monitoring, event management operations, and the running of reports.
Also use this version of the console to operate other products in the Tivoli Workload Automation family, such as Tivoli Workload Scheduler for Applications and Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS.
Download it from this page, or from its own Download document, from which you can also access information about its Detailed System Requirements and its Release Notes.
|Job Scheduling Console, version 8.4||Use the Job Scheduling Console, V8.4 with Tivoli Workload Scheduler, V8.5.1 for graphic views of job streams and dependencies. Use it also to manage scheduling objects in the database and the plan. It cannot be used with features introduced in version 8.5 and later.
Download it from this page.
See the Detailed System Requirements.
Tivoli Workload Scheduler requires RDBMS support using DB2®, Oracle, or Informix® Data Server. This version of Tivoli Workload Scheduler is bundled with a supported version of DB2. If you decide to use DB2 for your database support, you are recommended to download, install, and use the bundled version, which is licensed for use with Tivoli Workload Scheduler.
To use the bundled version, download both of the following electronic images for your platform:
- DB2 Enterprise Server Edition, the DB2 Client, and the DB2 Runtime Client
- DB2 Activation
Links to the DB2 installation documentation are provided in the Tivoli Workload Scheduler launchpad.
Downloading and assembling the product
The electronic images (eImages) to download are described by platform in the tabbed sections of this document. Download them as follows:
You can choose to download the eAssembly eImage for the platform, which contains the eImages for all of the components for that platform, or just the specific component eImage or eImages you require. In either case, make a note of the eImage part number or numbers you require and go to Passport Advantage Online. Use the part numbers in Passport Advantage to find each eImage and download it.
On UNIX platforms, you might have to set the ulimit parameter to unlimited if the eImage you want to download is larger than 1GB.
Note: For the Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS Agent, in addition to the eImages available for each specific platform, a Multiplatform Multilingual eAssembly eImage, part no. CRA8QML, is provided. Save time and download this cumulative eImage if you intend to install the agent on multiple platforms.
Unpack each of the eImages into the same temporary directory on your system.
Follow the detailed instructions in the Planning and Installation Guide to launch the launchpad, from which you can install the Tivoli Workload Scheduler components (and the bundled version of DB2). If you already have other related product installation CDs or eImages, such as those for Tivoli Workload Scheduler for Applications, you can install those products from the launchpad, as well.
Instructions are also provided in the Planning and Installation Guide for running silent installations using response files.
