Two scenarios will be demonstrated live, to get you acquainted with the PARMGEN method of configuration.
1. Scenario PGN01: Create an SMP-sharing runtime environment (RTE) with a z/OS Hub TEMS and OMEGAMON Agents. This first scenario simulates a brand new deployment such as a new install or a deployment for a Proof of Concept (PoC) to cater to our first time users.
2. Scenario PGN02: Convert an existing Configuration Tool (ICAT) RTE to PARMGEN and upgrade the products to the current release. This second scenario simulates a real-world upgrade for an existing customer who has a mix of products (OMEGAMON Agents, NetView Agent, System Automation Agent, Tivoli Advanced Agents, etc.). In the real world, perhaps not all of your products would be upgraded, but all in the RTE are converted to use PARMGEN where existing configuration values established in ICAT may be harvested and re-used in PARMGEN.
