Hi Gurus,

Questions for you.

1. Is it possible to assign a DB2 DBA for UNIX into a DB2 DBA for
Mainframe (OS390)?
2. Are the data administration commands the same for UNIX and

a lot..

The DB2 working way, the concepts and the theory are, more or less,
the same in Unix, Windows, mainframe.

BUT there are also a lot of difference, either in DB2 and operating
system. An Unix DBA works with interactive commands and script, whilst
a mainframe DBA works with JCL, controls panels and batch tools.

Two differents worlds....

1. They need to know OS/390 JCL, TSO, VSAM, etc.

2. The concepts are similar, but the admin commands are different (and
most are usually submitted via JCL on OS/390). The SQL (DDL, DML, and
DCL) is almost the same, but when you get to physical objects like
tablespaces, then there is a significant difference.

3. Administration commands are about 99% different.

From your inputs I see that the DBA for UNIX needs training for
OS/390. My next question is what trainings do you recommend so that
the DBA for UNIX perform being a DBA for Mainframe.

Thanks in advance!
