Hi All,

Hope you are all doing well..!! Thanks for your support in adavance.

I have a requirement to copy a Unix directory and all its subdirectoires into another directory. In other words, kind of backup creation (like, cp -r <source> <target>).

Target directory and subdirectories needs to be created dynamically.

I need to complete this task using batch JCL. I tried to understand OCOPY, OPUT, OPUTX commands but didn't get any clear syntax/understanding from my search.

Could you please help in this regard?
