DB2 9 DBA for z/OS Certification [off topic >500 lines]
Raymond, I am getting the same problem with > 500 lines - I haven't
actually counted them, but most times it appears < 500 ?!?.

I think when folks include the previous message (which I like to do), the
list server tags on all the splurb at the end of every concatenation, so
it quickly multiplies the possibility of exceeding 500 lines.

Perhaps the administrators could look at this ?

Re: DB2 9 DBA for z/OS Certification






Hey Horacio,

I think you already have your answer (so why am I chipping in? Good
question?) but, having gone through the process, it took a few
explanations from the charming ladies running the IDUG Athens
certification booth before I fully understood what I needed to do.

Like you and, I suspect, quite a few others I got my V7 certification by
passing both the Family Fundamentals test and the DBA one. For V8, as I?d
obtained my previous certification by having passed the Fundamentals test,
I only had to sit the V8 DBA test. For 9 (ooh, nearly said V9), as I?d
NOT obtained my previous certification by passing the fundamentals test, I
had to sit the 9 fundamentals test as well as the DBA one.

The idea is that you can only skip the fundamentals test for every other
(i.e. 2nd) certification. So, as I had to sit both the 9 fundamentals and
the 9 DBA tests I?m fully expecting to only have to sit the Vnext DBA test
when it comes around. Same is true of the LUW DB2 DBA certification path
too i.e. skipping the fundamentals test is OK for every other/2nd
certification.

Cheers,


Raymond
PS. Note to the DB2-L Administrators: was my e-mail, and Horatio?s
original, really over 500 lines?

Re: DB2 9 DBA for z/OS Certification [off topic >500 lines]
(in response to Mark Vickers)
Hey Mark,

I had a look at my last post on the Archives, and it says it was 316
lines - or about 250 more than it seems to me to be. And if I open it
it says there's text/plain lines of 49, and text/html of 192 lines. So
I really don't know what's going on with the record count. Like you, I
think it makes sense to have at least the last 'history' message so you
can follow the trail, but if it means posts get cut it might not always
be the case.

Guess I might try Cuneyt's suggestion of plain text and see what
happens.

Cheers,


Raymond

Re: DB2 9 DBA for z/OS Certification
(in response to Raymond Bell)
Hi Troy,

thanks for your answer.
Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. I didn't take Test 700 for my V8
certification. I had already taken Fundamentals Test for V7 (don't
remember the code, something like 510) and I skipped it for V8.

Cheers,
Horacio Villa

Re: [DB2-L] DB2 9 DBA for z/OS Certification






I have a blog entry on this:
http://ibmsystemsmag.blogs.com/db2utor/2007/10/roadmap-to-ibm-.html

If you look at the certify page for zOS:
http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/certs/08002303.shtml

IBM Certified Database Administrator - DB2 9 DBA for z/OS

Test(s):
1. Any 1 of the following tests:
a. Test 700 - DB2 V8.1 Family Fundamentals
b. Test 730 - DB2 9 Family Fundamentals
2. Test 732 - DB2 9 DBA for z/OS

You have taken 700 so you do not have to take 730.
You can just take 732.

Cheers,
Troy

Hi,

But the page for 9 says:

This certification requires 2 test(s).

Test(s):
1. Any 1 of the following tests:
a. Test 700 - DB2 V8.1 Family Fundamentals
b. Test 730 - DB2 9 Family Fundamentals
2. Test 732 - DB2 9 DBA for z/OS




So, do I have to take Test 700 or 730?

You are always better off using plain text with any listserver. HTML
adds a tremendous amount of junk to an e-mail.

Re: DB2 9 DBA for z/OS Certification
(in response to Troy Coleman)
HI Horacio,
I was on the same boat as you are.
The V7 exams won't carry forward as a pre-requisite for the V9 exams.

You have to take the (700 or 730) plus 732 to get the V9 certification.

I exchanged a couple of emails with IBM and their response that they wanted
folks to be "current" with the new DB2 offerings and a lot of things have
changed between V7 and V8.

I first wrote the 732, and then after the emails with IBM, took the 730 and got
the V9 certificate.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
-PK.Ganapathy
