[z/OS] Recommendations, please, for reading on V8-V9 transition process?
Folks,
I need to brush up on actual V8-V9 upgrade process. I'm fairly comfortable in NFM, but I'm looking at advising a company on how best to do their upgrades. I'm assuming the "What's New" manual and the Technical Overview redbook are necessary, but if anyone has any additional suggestions, I'm all "ears." (Installation guide, maybe?)
Thanks!
--Phil

Not sure in what capacity you will be advising them; Redbooks and such are nice, but the Installation Guide is the main document from which I create my implementation plans. You also need to follow _ALL_ the program directories for the various features installed. Otherwise, you might miss something like DSNTIJCC for example, required for z/OS Enablement but not included in the Installation Guide.

HTH,
Cathy

Cathy, Thanks. I don't currently have access to the "program directories", not having been a systems programmer... but I can at least follow the Installation Guide.

They're all right here:

I start with the pgmdir's to do the SMP work, switch to the installation guide to run the install clist and installation jobs, then back to the pgmdir's for other installation jobs.
