This up-to-date course provides you comprehensive RACF training; it show you how it works, how to use it (including the new features found in the latest release of RACF) and a valuable 400+ page reference manual.
Stu Henderson has successfully taught this course to RACF administrators, system programmers, and auditors since 1986. This is his most comprehensive RACF seminar, designed to give beginner and experienced administrator alike a detailed plan to implement RACF completely and effectively. This course will give you a non-technical understanding of RACF internals, architecture, and philosophy, which will help you in everything you do with RACF.
This class provides clear explanation of how RACF works and how it interfaces with other software. It also provides detailed explanations of all the operands of the basic RACF commands and comprehensive exercises to ensure the student is comfortable using them. The RACF panels are covered as well.
Newcomers to information technology will learn how to make effective use of RACF and the basics of RACF interfaces with other system software. Administrators already familiar with computer room procedures and with system software such as JES, CICS, and VTAM will learn the details of how to use RACF effectively to support them. Whatever your level of experience, this course will stretch your knowledge of how the system works and how to make RACF work for you.
This class covers RACF with MVS, and with z/OS, as well as with the VM operating system.
To fully master the implementation and administration of RACF, this RACF training should be taken several months prior to the HG05: Advanced RACF Administration seminar.
Students receive a 400+ page workbook which they will a find a valuable reference manual.
