This IBM® Redbooks® publication describes the IBM zPDT® 2017 Sysplex Extensions, which is a package that consists of sample files and supporting documentation to help you get a functioning, data sharing, sysplex up and running with minimal time and effort. This book is a significant revision of a previous IBM Redbooks document, zPDT 2016 Sysplex Extensions, SG24-8315. That previous book is still available on www.redbooks.ibm.com for readers that need the z/OS® 2.1 level of this package.

This package is designed and tested to be installed on top of a standard ADCD environment. It provides the extra files that you need to create a two-way data sharing IBM z/OS 2.2 sysplex that runs under z/VM® in a zPDT environment.
