IBM Digital Business Automation for Multicloud, Installation and Administration – zb317gspl

Course #: zb317gspl

Duration: 2 Days

This course teaches the skills required for getting started with IBM Digital Business Automation for Multicloud 18.0 (DBAMC). It consists of four hands on lab exercises that take a step by step approach in a virtual environment. They are:

1. Installing IBM Cloud Private Native (ICP) V3.1.0 – In this exercise, you install and configure ICP on Red Hat.

2. Installing IBM Digital Business Automation on Multicloud (DBAMC) V18.0 – In this exercise, you install and configure DBAMC.

3. Deploying IBM Operational Decision Manager by using DBAMC – In this exercise, you deploy ODM. This document is also used as a template to create future deployments of additional content service containers, such as Business Automation Workflow (BAW), IBM FileNet Content Manager and IBM Business Automation Insights. Additional container deployment exercises will be added in the future.

4. Managing DBAMC – In this exercise, you learn some key managing and troubleshooting skills.

You have the flexibility to do the entire course in this series or do only a specific number of exercises, provided the exercise prerequisites are met.

This course does not include any lecture units and consists of hands on lab exercises only. There is one introduction unit that describes the course, the lab environment, and explains some key tips for working through the hands on lab exercises.

The DBAMC sandbox environment for this course uses the Red Hat Linux 7.5 operating system in a virtual environment. It consists of four Virtual Machines (VM) in total. You use three of these VMs for product installation from scratch. You install ICP and DBAMC in a two-node architecture. One node serves as the master, boot, proxy, and management node. The second node serves as the worker node. The third VM serves as the Network File System for shared storage. The fourth VM has IBM Security Directory Server installed as the LDAP server and IBM DB2 Enterprise server installed as the database. You utilize this VM to provide shared services for deployment.

Some key advantages of this DBAMC education series:

1. You work on the RHEL images from scratch and work through the prerequisites, environment configuration, and finally, installation of ICP and verification. You can also take those instructions and learning and then apply those in your own RHEL images or a corporate environment and build there.

2. The hands on lands exercise, use IBM Cloud Private Native, instead of Community edition making it closer to a production environment.

3. You work with Red Hat Enterprise Linux environment, which is the expected production environment for many clients.

4. The DBAMC sandbox uses dedicated Network File System (NFS) VM that is connected to the Master node and it provides shared file storage to reduce workload.

5. The installation architecture is flexible and uses a two-node architecture (as opposed to a Community edition version on a single node) with an external NFS server for storage (smallest footprint but still resembling perhaps a small development or production environment). For additional container deployments, multiple worker nodes can be easily added to this architecture. Furthermore, ICP Native edition’s two node architecture is superior to the single node edition in the Community edition.
