Important: This chapter is not intended as an introduction to z/OS sysplex concepts or operation. We assume readers understand the basic concepts and terminology involved with z/OS sysplex use.
zPDT may be used in parallel sysplex and basic sysplex configurations. There are three key elements to both configurations:
•Communication among the multiple z/OS systems involved
•Synchronized time-of-day clocks among the z/OS systems involved
A conceptual implementation of these three elements (for zPDT) is depicted in Figure 21-1 ...
