Duration: 4 days



This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course IBM Integration Bus V9.0 System
Administration (ZM645). This option does not require any travel.

In this 4-day course, you learn how to administer IBM Integration Bus on distributed operating systems, such
as Windows and AIX, by using the IBM Integration Bus administrative interfaces. These interfaces include IBM
Integration Explorer, the IBM Integration web console, and the IBM Integration Bus command interface.


  • Install and configure an IBM Integration Bus instance
  • Establish, maintain, and manage an integration node
  • Use the command interface, IBM Integration Explorer, and the IBM Integration web console to administer
    IBM Integration Bus components
  • Use problem determination aids to diagnose and solve development and runtime errors
  • Implement IBM Integration Bus security
  • Use IBM Integration Explorer and the IBM Integration Bus web console to generate and analyze message
    flow statistics
  • Use the IBM Integration web console to record and reply messages
  • Use workload management policies to adjust the processing speed of messages and control the actions
    that are taken on unresponsive flows and threads
  • Implement an IBM Integration Bus global cache to store, reuse, and share data between integration nodes
  • Subscribe to IBM Integration Bus topics
  • Configure the integration node to support secure web services


This intermediate course is designed for product administrators and developers who administer IBM
Integration Bus.


You should successfully complete one of the IBM WebSphere MQ V7.5 system administration courses:

  • IBM WebSphere MQ V7.5 System Administration (using Windows for labs) (WM204) or (ZM204)
  • l IBM WebSphere MQ V7.5 System Administration (using Linux for labs) (WM206)
You should also have hands-on experience with the Windows operating system.

Experience with IBM Integration Bus message flow development is helpful, but not required.
