I want to copy VSAM file from prod to test region. In test we have to define the file first. I tried defining it through file Manager catalog services.But failed. Can anyone help me out?

Look at IDCAMS EXPORT / IMPORT it will take the file definition with the copy.

Although I would have defined it with IDCAMS myself.

Sorry. The error while trying to define the file using 'file manager' is 'Volume list not defined'.

I rather hope that you might be able to read the VSAm / IDCAMS manual yourself for that, and the same will help you with your post following this one.
