Customizing the z/OS Environment with Symbols

This chapter is a technical overview of techniques for running multiple systems utilizing:

  • Shared Parameter Libraries
  • Symbol Substitutions

The systems represented are running as virtual guests under z/VM. It is not necessary that they be running as virtual guests to utilize the optimizations presented here, although some parameters relate to a virtual environment. Although a general knowledge of MVS parameters and symbol usage will make the chapter easier to follow, it is not required.
