Overall z/OS Inspection

System Inspection, a “Virtual z/OS IPL”, begins like a “Real IPL” with the validation of a discovered or provided IPL Unit Address and LOADPARM. LOADxx is filtered, relationships examined, Members in PARMLIB are checked for syntactical correctness, referential integrity, the existence and attribute characteristics of system datasets are validated. These and other inspections report problems that could result in an IPL failure. Subsystem and Sysplex relationships are inspected and/or cross-checked with other Images to determine overall Sysplex Integrity.
