This intermediate course is designed for technical professionals who require the skills to be an administrator for any of the WebSphere MQ queue managers except WebSphere MQ for z/OS, or to provide support to others performing this task.
While the course is primarily aimed at the Windows and UNIX implementations of WebSphere MQ, and the practical exercises are run on Windows, administrators with an interest in WebSphere MQ on iSeries may expect to derive a substantial benefit from the course, as both WebSphere MQ concepts and MQ Script Commands are common across all WebSphere MQ platforms.
Please note the prerequisite for this course is Technical Introduction to WebSphere MQ (WM100). This 4-day instructor-led course provides technical professionals with the skills needed to administer IBM WebSphere MQ version 7 queue managers except for IBM WebSphere MQ for z/OS. For WebSphere MQ for iSeries, see the remarks under Audience. The course is also appropriate for administrators of WMQ version 6. In this course, students learn how to install, customize, operate, and administer IBM WebSphere MQ on distributed platforms. Topics covered in this course include configuration, day-to-day administration, problem recovery, and managing security and performance. In addition to the instructor-led lectures, students also participate in hands-on lab exercises that are designed to reinforce lecture content. The lab exercises utilize IBM WebSphere MQ V7, giving students practical experience with tasks such as handling queue recovery, implementing security, and problem determination.
