This course presents the concepts, features and specifics of managing OpenVMS complex systems. OpenVMS complex systems include OpenVMS Integrity nPars, OpenVMS Cluster Systems and storage options available to the system manager. The course presents configuration and design concepts and configuration options that may be implemented by the system manager.
OpenVMS Cluster System interconnect options, availability, scalability, and performance considerations are covered as well as disaster tolerant cluster configurations.
OpenVMS Integrity nPar concepts will include hardware concepts. These concepts are important for the configuration and implementation of an OpenVMS Integrity Cell based system.
Performance, availability, and scalability are common topics throughout the course. This course also describes general troubleshooting techniques for OpenVMS Cluster Systems and some system tools available for troubleshooting. Introduced are a number of PC based tools for maintaining and monitoring both the systems and data storage.
