BMC AMI Ops Automation 8.x: Fundamentals Using TOM

BMC AMI Ops Automation (BMC AMI OpsA) product is part of the BMC AMI Ops Automation for Data Centers solution. This product provides tools and applications to improve an operator’s ability to provide high system availability and helps the operator through error minimization, improved productivity, and problem determination and prevention.

This course provides the essential knowledge required to work on Total Object Manager (TOM) which provides a basic infrastructure that manages a variety of objects in a z/OS sysplex environment. The course teaches how to define individual objects or grouped together in sets, set up calendar dependencies, associate automation commands with an object that can be scheduled before TOM starts an object, and also define multiple systems on which an object is eligible to be started.

Note: BMC AMI Ops Automation was formerly known as MainView AutoOPERATOR™.
