WebSphere MQ V7 System Administration For Distributed Platforms
WebSphere MQ Training Overview

This three day course is intended for System Administrators who will be installing and tailoring WebSphere MQ V7 on the distributed platforms (Windows, Linux, AIX, UNIX, Sun Solaris, Linux, AS/400,). Most of the course contents also apply to other platforms such as z/OS, Tandem and VSE. The students learn how to install WebSphere MQ, set up Queue Managers, define and manage Queues, Message Channels, Distributed Queuing, Clusters and learn the basic problem determination techniques. The course also helps to prepare for the IBM WMQ Certification tests. It is using machine exercises specific to the selected platform.
The course and the machine exercises can be set up for the following platforms:

  • WebSphere MQ V7 System Administration for Windows
  • WebSphere MQ V7 System Administration for Linux
  • WebSphere MQ V7 System Administration for AIX (pSeries)
  • WebSphere MQ V7 System Administration for Sun Solaris
  • WebSphere MQ V7 System Administration for AS/400 (iSeries)
WebSphere MQ Training Topics

A review of WebSphere MQ concepts
  • Installation and configuration
  • Queue manager setup
