This course is targeted for IT professionals who are responsible for the configuration and administration of an HPSS solution (e.g., current or future HPSS administrators) but also for people who are interested in learning more about HPSS.
After completion of the course, the student will be able to:
- Understand the purpose of major HPSS software components
- Plan, install and configure a basic HPSS
- Manage an HPSS
- Identify and resolve common operational problems
- Utilize HPSS utilities and the HPSS command line interface
Delivery Type / Course Format:
The HPSS System Administration course will either be delivered via a traditional instructor-led format with hands-on exercises, or via virtual classroom (web-based) delivery without the benefit of hands-on exercises and face-to-face collaboration with other students and instructors.
For the instructor-led virtual classroom option, registered students will have access via the web and will be sent a URL for the training session. The instructor will lead the class through the course material, which will be displayed for all students using IBM Connections Cloud (see below). Students attending virtually will have the ability to participate to a large extent as if on-site (e.g., ask/answer questions electronically or verbally) but without benefits of lab-access exercises as well as collaboration and networking with other people.
The HPSS System Administration course offers an overview of the components that make up the HPSS software and the dependencies of these components on their environment in order to perform data storage services. The class covers the latest HPSS release.
The class consists of the following:
Discussion sessions with the HPSS experts: HPSS team members share their field experiences with HPSS/Db2 systems engineering, management, and troubleshooting.
Instructors will lead classroom students through the installation process to configure a basic HPSS. The system will be used to demonstrate HPSS functionality throughout the class. There will be hands-on exercises for students. Each student attending in-person for classroom instruction should bring a laptop to participate in the hands-on exercises. Virtual classroom students will be unable to participate in hands-on exercises.
Students should have previous Linux system administration experience or training.
The virtual classroom (web-based) training will utilize IBM Connections Cloud, which supports various browsers, depending on your operating system. View cloud computing system requirements for complete details.
Participation in hands-on exercises is included with the course. Exercises are usually performed in small groups. To participate in hands-on exercises, students attending the course in Houston must bring a laptop computer with them to access Houston HPSS lab machines and training resources as we are unable to provide students with laptops or other computer resources to participate in exercises.
Interested parties should send the name and email address of prospective attendees to Thuy Tran (firstname.lastname@example.org).
