Linux on IBM e-server zSeries and S/390: System Management

This IBM Redbook describes system management for Linux on IBM e-server zSeries and S/390. It will help you understand the primary management processes for a set of Linux images on zSeries and S/390, and how to identify appropriate tools for your environment. First we describe the setup of an S/390 environment with multiple Linux images. We discuss how to install and configure several of the most commonly used Linux distributions and the system management tools that are included with those distributions. Next we discuss the installation, configuration, and use of open source software for both general and special purpose system management, highlighting the offerings from Tripwire, Moodss, Amanda, OpenLDAP, and System Installation Suite. We then discuss the proprietary Linux system management solutions provided by IBM Tivoli, BMC, and Computer Associates. For each company's offerings, we present an overview of the products, details for installing and configuring them, and iinformation on how to use the solutions to manage your Linux systems. Many additional tools are available for Linux system management, both from open source projects and from commercial vendors. Because of the rapid growth in this area, it is impossible to provide comprehensive coverage of all the available products. However, the overview of system management issues for Linux presented in this book, along with details for a broad cross-section of products in the marketplace, is useful even for those considering solutions not specifically covered here.
