Linux and related applications running on IBM S/390 and zSeries mainframe hardware
An article by Adam Thornton originally published in Technical Support (December 2000) discusses Linux for System/390 for designing and deploying large-scale Internet service provider (ISP) and Internet data center (IDC) infrastructure solutions.
This article by Adam Thornton (November 2000) describes the content and construction of a test plan for implementing a World Wide Web (WWW) virtual server farm and supporting Linux for S/390 infrastructure for a large telecommunications company.
Appended below are 4 files which are a insserv-safe version of the Oracle instance startup script, modified to take advantage of the "standard" Yast features and /etc/sysconfig support. I also split up the database startup and the SQL*net startup by putting each into a separate script and adding a dependency on the database startup for sqlnet to initialize. All the configuration variables are pulled out into /etc/sysconfig files, and you can edit them individually with the YaST sysconfig editor.
This paper is targeted to decision makers and technical staff responsible for evaluating platform hosting decisions. Some technical familiarity with infrastructure design principles is assumed.
