BMC Mainframe: z/OS UNIX System Services Part 1 - Concepts & Facilities

The course is developed and delivered by © RSM Technology.

This two-day course describes and explains UNIX System Services from a technician's point of view. The principal UNIX concepts are introduced and explained, followed by a thorough examination of USS (UNIX) at a conceptual level.

The course goes on to describe the facilities available, and explains how the z/OS system environment has changed to support open system and UNIX concepts through z/OS USS.
