Course Details

Overview

In this course you receive an overview of the HP Integrity NonStopT NB-series server architecture and basic software functionality, including functions of OSM, TACL, and Subsystem Control Facility (SCF) for system, disk drive, tape drive, and communications lines monitoring. The course also covers functional command use to allow monitoring system files with the use of FUP and monitoring the system spooler with PERUSE and SPOOLCOM commands. The 5-day course is 80 percent lecture and 20 percent hands-on labs using HP servers.
