Hi all,

What exactly is system administrator role? Is it a synonym for DBA or different. If you have any difference, how do they differ (in all aspects eg. responsibilities etc...).

If you read the Introduction to the New Mainframe: z/OS Basics guide from IBM, in Chapter 1.9 it describes typical roles.

It defines a System Administrator as "The person who maintains the critical business data". It gives an example of a DBA being one type of System Administrator, a Security Administrator as being another type.
