Hi Experts,



We were doing our testing in one region. Now they have moved the servers to some other region. Physical move ! I have connectivity and access to both of them. However, I'm not sure if they are connected by any means.

I tried FTP-ing , XMIT-ing et all , no luck...
What's the easiest way to copy all my PDS and PS from one region to another.

Appreciate your help experts...

Thanks!

What's more, "regions" in this apparent context is non-standard terminology.

Your site may have security issues with this concept and may take a dim view of the idea. As Mr. Sorrichetti suggests, talk to your support first before you do anything, or you find yourself being escorted to the door by unfriendly security people.

Enrico,

Sure, I'll try talking to them.

Steve,

I understand. But, these are my personal files. Start with my userid as first qualifier. No issues there !


Thanks anyways..

Many organizations believe that EVERYHING you do using their mainframe belongs to them -- if your organization is one of these, then you have no "personal files" on the mainframe, no matter what you think. And the warning about possibly being escorted to the door would apply to you.

Hello,

Is there some shared dasd? Problem solved . . .

In one process you should be able to run a job to back all of them up and restore them by a single execution of ADRDSSU.

As mentioned, it would be best to ask your support what they recommend.

is this THE fredrick andrews from chennai?!??!

OK, seriously though, do you mean to say they have moved the load libraries from one mainframe box to another mainframe box?

When you say "moved to another region" that could mean a lot of things.

Like in my shop, the word "region" is an IMS or CICS system that you log into and do work on. Like, we have a testing region, and a UAT region and production region. To move code from one to the other, we simply 'promote' the pds members up a level in SCLM. This physically moves them from one pds to another. The regions look at different libraries on the same physical box though.

My wild guess for his "region" would be LPAR. icon_neutral.gif

Fredrick, you can type NODE in your SDSF and verify if your current node has connectivity to your new NodeName.

what do you mean by no luck ? You need to tell or answer the questions asked above as none of what you have asked here is clear to anyone.

Is it just me, or does anyone else just want to find this person and sit down and help them? This is the kind of question that makes me want to take someone under my wing.

You could use TERSE and transfer the tersed file to your LAN drive (specify BINARY), then restored the tersed file from the LAN into the new plex, an run the terse job to unpack it. TERSE really compressed the file down. Note that the output terse file must be restored back to the mainframe with LRECL=1024 otherwise the TERSE UNPACK won't recognise it as a tersed file.

//*
//TERSE EXEC PGM=AMATERSE,PARM='PACK'
//* ,PARM='SPACK'
//* ,PARM='UNPACK'
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//*
//SYSUT1 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=INPUT.FILE
//SYSUT2 DD DSN=OUTPUT.TERSE.FILE,
// DISP=(,CATLG),SPACE=(TRKS,(750,750),RLSE)
//
