Is there any way to move complete VSAM files from one Mainframe machine to another, without the actual tape or disk move.

Some suggestions will be really appreciable. Thanks for your help in advance.

HI,
you didn't mentined which connection you have between two machine for example is there any channel to channel connection or is it possible to transfer data through ftp?
if NOT you can simply use transfer facility of your emulator which you are using to connect to mainfram.
Anyhow depending on the configuration which your manframs are connected or not you can use one or several way to move a complete vsam file from one to other for example if there is and disk shared between you main fram you acn allocate a user catalog in the first machine and defining the alias of the vsam file linked to that user catalog next you can import the user catalog in the second machine and definning the alias in the second machine, so you can use the same vsam file in the machine 2 ot copy it and use the copy of it.
in final you cannot transfer(as i know up to now!) vsam files direclty so must change them to qsam via export or dumping it with ADRDSSU utility,transfering qsam via xmit or ftp or transfer option of the emulator.
next when you move the qsam to the new machine recover vsam file by import or reloading it by ADRDSSU utility.

Connect : Direct (from Sterling Commerce) handles VSAM-to-VSAM file moves across systems.
