The unique and rich functions of System Automation for OS/390® (SA OS/390) V2.1 can ease z/OS and OS/390 management, reduce costs, and increase application availability. SA OS/390 automates I/O, processor, and system operations and includes "canned" automation for IMS, CICS®, Tivoli® OPC, and DB2®. Its focus is on Parallel Sysplex® automation, including multi- and single-system configurations, and on integration with Tivoli enterprise solutions, like the Tivoli Enterprise Console® (TEC). With the new manager/agent design, it is now possible to automate Parallel Sysplex applications by virtually removing system boundaries for automation.
Parallel Sysplex Application Automation
A Parallel Sysplex application can be automated as a whole, no matter how many resources it consists of and where they are. Resources can have complex dependencies, can be started as required, and can be moved to other systems.
Simpler Operations through Goal-Driven Automation
The automation manager decides when and where resources need to be made available or unavailable using its awareness of status, dependencies, and location of all resources and prioritized operator requests and policy goals specified by the automation administrator. This goal-driven automation greatly simplifies operations: operators just request what they want, and SA OS/390 takes care of any dependencies and resolution of affected or even conflicting goals.
Reduction of Complexity with Groups
Sysplex-wide grouping of resources and definition of aggregate or business applications can greatly reduce the complexity of automation definition and operations. Groups free operators from knowing the various pieces of the application.
The Graphical User Interface (GUI)
The system operations GUI is based on Tivoli NetView® for OS/390. The easy to implement, flexible GUI displays comprehensive system and application information including dependencies and offers point-and-shoot operation with easy-to-use context sensitive command menus. The I/O operations GUI is based on OS/390 HCM V2R9 to achieve maximum I/O configuration integration.
The main goal of System Automation for OS/390 (SA OS/390) V2.1 is to make a Parallel Sysplex cluster no more difficult to operate or manage than a large single system. The previous version (1.3) offered unique sysplex automation functions like enterprise-wide single point of control, sysplex-wide single system image, and the Parallel Sysplex Operation Center. Version 2.1 includes all this and much more.
To automate Parallel Sysplex applications, new concepts are required to handle cross-system dependencies, reduce complexity, increase availability, ease operations, and model your configuration (refer to the Supplemental Information for details). SA OS/390 V2.1 introduces these required new concepts and makes automation of true Parallel Sysplex applications a reality by offering:
Elements of the automation engine have been separated in SA OS/390 2.1. Those that observe, react, and take action remain within the NetView address space. This portion is known as the automation agent and must be present on every system to be automated.
The coordinating, decision-making, and controlling elements are grouped into a single new address space known as the automation manager. It is loaded with a model of all the automated resources defined across the entire Parallel Sysplex cluster.
The automation manager communicates with the automation agents on each system via XCF (Cross-System Coupling Facility) and MQSeries for OS/390 V5.2 shared queues. It receives updates about the status of resources in its automation model and sends orders to the agents when various conditions within the model are encountered.
The real beauty of this design is that multiple systems can be automated
from a shared automation policy that is maintained in a central location.
For the first time, a true single S/390® automation instance is
Group and Conquer
For SA OS/390 V2.1, a group is a collection of resources that can be distributed within a Parallel Sysplex cluster. A group can be a part of any dependency or other group. Resources can be members of multiple groups and are referred to by a sysplex- or system-wide unique name.
Exploiting groups is beneficial in many ways:
Powerful Dependency Support
Resources can have complex dependencies of different kinds in and outside of an application. SA OS/390 V2.1 gives you the power to define these dependencies, so that applications always get what they need, are started in the right order as quickly as possible, and are shut down fast without interference. Thus definitions for resource dependencies can involve:
In SA OS/390 V2.1, the emphasis has also switched from purely command-driven automation to goal-driven automation. Automation programmers now define the default behavior of the systems and application components in terms of dependencies, triggering conditions, and scheduled requests.
The automation manager works to keep systems in line with these goals and prioritized operator requests by using its awareness of status, dependencies, and location of all resources to decide what resources need to be made available or unavailable, when, and where. The number of checks and decisions it has to make can be very high. A human simply can't do the same as fast and reliably as the automation manager.
Goal-driven automation greatly simplifies operations. Operators just say
what they want, and automation takes care of any dependencies and
resolution of affected or even conflicting goals. Sysplex-wide
automation also can remove the need for specifying extra configurations
for backup purposes. Instead, cross-system dependencies and server and
system goals can be used to decide which backup system is to be chosen.
Graphical User Interfaces
The system operations GUI for SA OS/390 2.1 is based on the platform-independent NetView Management Console of Tivoli NetView for OS/390. It displays comprehensive system and application information, including dependencies, and offers point-and-shoot operation with easy-to-use, context-sensitive command menus.
Problem management functions allow resource marking to indicate to other operators that a problem is being handled. Exceptions can be created dynamically out of NetView messages and can be added to the graphical interface for visual correlation.
The I/O operations GUI of SA OS/390 is based on OS/390 Hardware
Configuration Manager (HCM) V2R9. New functions in OS/390 HCM V2R9
provide visual displays of the I/O operations status for the active S/390
I/O configuration. HCM now cooperates with the SA OS/390 I/O operations
component to display color-coded status information and active switch
paths directly on the existing HCM configuration diagram. OS/390
operators also can retrieve detailed node element information and issue
I/O operations connectivity commands while working at the HCM
workstation. These enhancements provide powerful new tools for fast and
effective problem resolution.

With System Automation for OS/390, Version 2 Release 1, IBM continues to deliver OS/390 systems management products that can help you increase your competitiveness by increasing your business application availability and by reducing operations and systems management costs.
Its unique enterprise and Parallel Sysplex support helps you to reduce complexity and to increase manageability. SA OS/390 V2.1 can be a part of your enterprise-wide systems management solution because it exploits Tivoli's OS/390 event integration and also can provide data for Tivoli Business Systems Manager.
SA OS/390 V2.1 integrates and extends the function of three established licensed programs: Automated Operations Control/MVS (AOC/MVS), Enterprise Systems CONnection (ESCON®) Manager, and Target System Control Facility (TSCF). Such integration also allows for simpler and more consistent installation, customization, maintenance, and automation. SA OS/390 lets you reconfigure a processor's partitions, perform power-on reset, IML processors, IPL operating systems (even automatically), investigate and respond to I/O configuration errors, (re)start and stop applications, and monitor resources. SA OS/390 has a broad coverage of the resources of the Parallel Sysplex cluster, providing you with a wealth of information on those resources, a rich set of control functions, and means to access all those functions through user interfaces as well as automation. SA OS/390 V2.1 contains important capabilities to help in the management of Parallel Sysplex clusters but is also valuable if you have not yet implemented a Parallel Sysplex cluster.

SA OS/390® 2.1 presents a new and advanced approach for automating the resources of your enterprise to ensure comfortable resource maintenance and high availability of systems and applications.
Key aspects of the new design are:
In SA OS/390 2.1, you must define all automation policies using the customization dialog, thus creating a policy database, and then use the appropriate functions of the customization dialog to build the automation configuration (that is, the system operations control files). Because the processing of automation is distributed between a sysplex automation manager and its automation agents on the systems (and so are the various system operations control files), it is absolutely necessary to build these files in one coherent process. SA OS/390 checks the consistency of the automation information stored on the automation manager and the automation agents. You can consider this process as a sysplex-wide, consistent automation configuration refresh.
Application move refers to the process of stopping an active set of resources and starting an alternative set in a coordinated fashion. The move functions that you can specify against a group are:
In SA OS/390, the automation function is split up:
You define the resources that you want to automate with SA OS/390 using the customization dialog. Thus the automation manager contains a model of all of the automated resources within the sysplex. The automation agents are the automation manager's eyes and arms. They feed the automation manager with status information and perform the actions that the automation manager tells them to. The automation manager is the brain of automation. It does all of the decision making that involves interaction between one or more resources. The automation manager provides sysplex-wide automation. So its main purpose is to provide one central point of bookkeeping of all resources within a sysplex, that is, the automation manager knows:
According to the available information, the automation manager makes decisions and instructs the corresponding automation agent where the resource is located to put the resource into the desired state. The automation manager knows five different statuses from each of the resources:
Decision-making is done by the automation manager with the help of
so-called "goals." Goals are either defined by the automation programmer
who defines permanent automation policy using the customization dialog,
or created interactively by operators who issue commands to define goals.
A basic concept of SA OS/390 is to distinguish between the desired state of a resource, which is either AVAILABLE or UNAVAILABLE, and (broadly speaking) its actual state. The desired state, which is also called the automation goal, can be different from the actual state; a resource whose desired state is to be running (AVAILABLE), can actually be down. SA OS/390 always tries to keep the actual state in line with the desired state, but sometimes this is not possible. SA OS/390 is called goal driven because all requests that can be made to it from the outside refer to the desired state of the target resource. When an operator passes a start request for a resource to SA OS/390, what he or she does in fact require is to set the desired state of the resource to AVAILABLE. It is up to SA OS/390 to decide whether (1) this is at all possible and, if so, whether (2) the actual state can be modified accordingly:
A request is persistent until it is either processed, overridden, or revoked. A command in earlier releases was either successfully processed immediately or unsuccessfully rejected. If a resource is started by an operator outside of SA OS/390, but its SA OS/390 goal is defined as being unavailable, then it is stopped again by SA OS/390.
One of the main tasks of system automation when starting or stopping a
resource is to consider the dependencies that exist between the resource
to be started or stopped and other resources. Certain resources can be
started only when certain other resources are already running (start
dependencies), and certain resources can be stopped only when certain
other resources are already down (stop dependencies). Such dependencies
can be specified in the policy database. The only restriction is that
the dependent and the supporting resource must belong to the same sysplex
(they need not reside on the same system). SA OS/390 takes dependencies
into account when it is requested to start or to stop a resource. By
default, it will try to start or stop all resources on which the target
resource of the request directly or indirectly depends.
Modern applications often consist of more than one component, and these
different components can be distributed among different systems. SA
OS/390 provides the possibility to combine different components of an
application on one or more systems within a sysplex into an application
group. This allows you to start and stop a complex application by a
single command, and to integrate it into automation processes as a whole.
CICS®/IMS Automation is integrated into SA OS/390. The feature code
is automatically installed with the base code and resides in the same set
of libraries. CICS and IMS regions must be defined in the policy
database as subsystems by linking CICS/IMS applications to systems in
order to be available to CICS/IMS Automation. Triggers and service
periods for CICS/IMS regions are also defined as for any other
The NetView Management Console (NMC) is part of the Tivoli® NetView for OS/390 product and is used for monitoring and controlling network resources. As SA OS/390 is based on NetView, it also exploits the graphical capabilities of the NMC. You can monitor and control your whole enterprise by means of NMC. It is also possible to monitor your enterprise from a single workstation (single point of control). This holds for system operations as well as for processor operations.
The communication between SA OS/390 and the NMC is maintained by the SA OS/390 topology manager. An SA OS/390 topology agent on each target system retrieves the enterprise data from the automation manager. The SA OS/390 topology manager on the focal point provides the information into RODM. GMFHS takes care that the information in RODM gets converted to graphical information on the NMC workstation. The following sketches the main tasks of the SA OS/390 topology manager for system operations. For processor operations, the mode of operation is similar. The retrieved information includes all resources, for example, applications, application groups, systems, and groups of systems, with their mutual dependencies and relationships. The SA OS/390 topology manager stores these resources together with their dependency information within RODM.
The SA OS/390 topology manager calls BLDVIEWS to build the views that are
necessary for these resources to be displayed on the NMC. The
definitions for the views must be supplied by the users. On the NMC
workstation, you can see the graphical visualization of what is automated
in system operations and processor operations. For system operations,
the automation manager knows about the configuration of the sysplex and
the resources running in it. For processor operations, it is the
processor operations focal point that knows about the processor
operations configuration. In order to issue a command against a
resource, click on this resource with the right mouse button to open a
context menu. This menu contains only those system operations or
processor operations commands that are applicable to the respective
resource. Some SA OS/390 commands are not provided because they cannot
be reasonably connected to a resource. When the state of the resource is
affected by the command, the state information (event component of the
label, color of the icon) is actualized on the NMC.
The automation manager is introduced as a separate address space. An
installation needs one primary automation manager and may have one or
more backups. The automation manager is loaded with a model of the
sysplex when it initializes. It then communicates with the automation
agents on each system, receiving updates to the status of the resources
in its model, and sending orders out to the agents as various conditions
within the model become satisfied. For reasons of high availability, SA
OS/390 offers the concept of the primary and secondary automation manager
(PAM and SAM), where the SAM can take over the work of the PAM without
loss of any information or without any requests being processed twice.
Secondary automation managers are able to take over the function whenever
a primary automation manager fails. In a sysplex, the automation agents
communicate with each other using XCF. Automation managers communicate
with the automation agents using MQSeries®.
Processor Operations PC
SA OS/390 V2.1 is the last release providing the processor operations PC component including the SA workstation with its ProcOps LAN Passthru function. This PC is used for remote operator console access and for the system console of pre-CMOS processors. Operator console access is now being provided by:

OS/390 Base Elements or Optional Features:
Other Program Products:
Compatibility: System Automation for OS/390, Version 2.1 is upwardly compatible with System Automation for OS/390, Version 1.3 (5645-005). The single point of control is supported in this mixed environment.
Even Automation Control Files (ACF) from AOC/MVS can be migrated. Policy databases back to AOC/MVS, Release 2, can be converted automatically.
The generated backlevel Automation Control File (ACF) can be used by:
The recommended migration starts with the automatic conversion of your policy database and its usage also for backlevel systems. You can then implement SA OS/390 V2.1 on one system and expand it system by system without having two policy databases, thus avoiding integrity and productivity issues.
The gateway processing, including SDF and SENDCMD, which now is INGSEND, is also compatible back to AOC/MVS.
For easy migration, SA OS/390 can interoperate with ESCON Manager. Also the ESCON Manager API and commands are still supported. For more information refer to Appendix E of System Automation for OS/390 V2R1 Planning and Installation (SC33-7038).
