Abstract: One of the many growing pains for mainframe staff associated with introducing z/VM and Linux into an existing mainframe environment is the need to provide a traditional level of event management and automation that is typical of the z/OS systems that have existed for many years. With Linux being a distributed based solution, including Linux on System z, event management and automation is often approached at the Linux virtual machine level only. While this may provide an acceptable level of Linux management, this approach is lacking. This paper will introduce IBM’s Operations Manager for z/VM and demonstrate some of the ways this management tool can be used to provide event management and automation in the structure and framework familiar to most z/OS system programmers and operations staff.
