Maybe there is a security restriction.

This is a site specific question. You will need to test it and see what happens.

I believe you meant - running a 'test job' in the 'prod region'.

This can be done but its a bad idea to do so.

Yes we can submit. But check the qualifiers correctly.Change the account parameter and high level quaifiers in test region appropriately.It will auto matically be routed to Production region.

my idea is not to submit test job in production rather using test region data pds in the production.
is it possible to do so?
if so can you explain me how we do it.

i am not sure about your question.

Correct me if I am wrong.

You have some date in test region. And you need to execute a job in production region with that test data.

If yes, you can directly point to the test PDS from production job.Check all the attributes of the PDS in test region with the same in production before submitting.It will work

Well, without having access to your system, YOU are the only person who will know that.

Why not try and EDIT the dataset from the Prod LPAR ???

We have two options.

1.TSO transmit in command line
2.NDM

which will ask you the data and region names,
Its also like FTP (File transfer protocol), if you specify the region and data it will be moved to production region. then you can submit.

Hello,

Once again, i have gotten to the party late. . . . icon_smile.gif

If yu have no access to production, how will you use a test file in production even if it is available in that environment?

If you actually explained the requirement (rather than asking if some test pds might be available in production), we could probably offer much more usable suggestions.

Is the very first code/data that is being "promoted" from the test environment to the producton environment? Usually, there is a formal process in place for this.

If the executable(s) are placed in "usable" libraries and the data is in dataset(s) that have usable permissions, the onsite people should be able to run them. I'd suggest someone talk with the people who perform admin on the producton environment to make sure there are no surprises.
