Automating Hardware Functions
Hardware Services (HWS) provides automate hardware (HMC) functions. Through HWS, hardware event notifications are captured as the CA OPS/MVS Generic API events. A rule-based automation can be designed for hardware events such as hardware message events, security events, and operating system message events. An extra host environment is provided to automate responses and hardware interaction through hardware commands, and the retrieval and updating of system attributes.
