IBM WebSphere MQ V7: Designing and Architecting Clustering Solutions

IBM Course Code: ZM251G

Vendor# WM251G

GK# 9527

Course Overview

In this course you learn the intermediate skills that you need to administer an IBM WebSphere MQ clustered environment. The course is essential for anyone who is responsible for the design and administration of WebSphere MQ solutions that include WebSphere MQ clusters.

The course starts with an overview of WebSphere MQ clustering and a lab in which you create and test a simple queue manager cluster. It continues by covering how to design and set up a sophisticated cluster, manage clusters, and perform full repository reassignment. You also learn how to remove queue manager clusters and to use diagnostic tools to determine and resolve problems within a WebSphere MQ cluster.
