For many of you, working with QMGTOOLS to provide info to IBM on a technical problem may have been the first time that you’ve ever dealt with the QMGTOOLS utility package, and for many of you who have only worked with QMGTOOLS at IBM’s direction on a support case, or, never even heard of it.
Join Marc as he covers hidden gems in QMGTOOLS.
