DSM/SCM Operations and Management for HPE NonStop Systems - U4150S

Beschreibung

This course provides the student with the foundation and basic skills necessary to install and configure both host and target DSM/SCM systems. Additionally, they will learn the basic skills necessary to use the five DSM/SCM block mode interfaces, and two GUI interfaces. This four-day course is  50 percent lecture and 50 percent hands-on labs using the DSM/SCM environment.

After you successfully complete this course, expect to be able to:
  • Install and configure DSM/SCM on both host and target systems, and install and configure the Planner Interface on a PC workstation
  • Correctly use the Planner Interface to perform all activities related to managing software configuration on multiple target systems
  • Correctly use the Target Interface to manage DSM/SCM activities on a target system
  • Correctly use the Archive and Database Maintenance Interface to manage and maintain both the archive and databases associated with a host and target environment
  • Correctly use the CNFGINFO tool to build or modify file and product attributes for software managed by DSM/SCM
  • Correctly perform the activities required on the target system to activate the new software
  • Correctly perform the activities required to back out to the previous revision
