This IBM Redbooks publication discusses configuring and administering Linux systems running on IBM System z9 and zSeries. It is intended for system administrators and IT architects responsible for deploying Linux servers on System z9 and zSeries servers.
We examine new features and enhancements of the Linux 2.6 kernel. We demonstrate Linux device configuration using sysfs and udev and discuss running Linux servers under z/VM. Networking options available for Linux on IBM System z9 and zSeries are examined in detail. Configuration of FCP-attached SCSI disks and traditional ECKD storage is demonstrated.
