Hi,

I am in the process of creating a tool that would retrieve data from DB2 tables in Production Environment and put it in a dataset. Later we would insert the records in these Datasets into the DB2 tables in Test Environment (Data replication of specific records)

Is there a possibility to have a DS Trigger ESP Event in Test Environment where the Dataset used for triggering the Event being created in Production Environment.

If it’s not a viable condition then what is the alternative available to have the dataset created in Production ESP to trigger a ESP event in Test environment.

To answer, technically, yes - this can be done; however, can this be done at your shop - I believe you should be asking this to someone at your shop who supports ESP implementation there.

One alternative, OTOH, I think can be - get the data-set XMITted to Test LAPR and get a Data-set triggered Job scheduled in Test LPAR. (This suggestion is subject to the assumption that I understood what is your requirement and it might be wrong.)

Hi Anuj,

Thanks for your reply post. Our side ESP implementation do no support transferring datasets between regions.

XMIT is the name I get to come across that could be used for this purpose. I tried to get a manual on using XMIT in Mainframe, but unfortunately couldn't find anything.

Is it possible for you to provide an example Job step for XMITing a dataset from Prod LPAR to Test LPAR.

XMIT is short for TSO TRANSMIT command to send a mail file. Possibly you can try something like this:

Code:
//STEP01   EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01,DYNAMNBR=20       
//*                                             
//SYSTSIN  DD  *                               
 XMIT TESTNODE.YOURID DSN('HLQ.SLQ.LLQ')
/*
//*

You'll execute this in your Prod LPAR and HLQ is something should be allowed in your Test LPAR as HLQ, else the job fails.

Usually,

if your site is correctly setup there will be a specific shared HLQ for this purpuse or transferring data from PROD to TEST.
