The Fundamentals of Operations Using Navigator for i series describes the job processing environment on an IBM i system and the common tasks performed by a IBM i operator. The series describes how to submit batch jobs, monitor and control their execution, and manage the printer output they create. It also shows how to perform various management tasks for interactive jobs. Global operational tasks, such as managing subsystems, controlling devices, and determining jobs waiting for operator intervention, are also covered.
Approximate Study Time for the Entire Series: 8-12 hours
This series contains the following courses:
This series should be taken by the person responsible for the operation of an IBM i system. This person may be a dedicated operator, a system administrator, or a designated user.
The first two courses are also recommended for programmers and users who submit and monitor the execution of their own batch jobs and/or who control the printing of their output.
This series assumes that you understand IBM i concepts and can perform basic tasks using IBM Navigator for i. You can satisfy these prerequisites by successfully completing the Introduction to the IBM i Environment series. If you feel you already have the necessary skills, you can verify your belief by successfully completing the Competency Exam for that series.
