Copy / move IODF datasets or IODF Work datasets from one LPAR to another.

Below procedure can be utilized to move IODF Work cluster from LPAR1 to LPAR2

1. Dump the SYS1.IODF03.WORK cluster on MTI-3 LPAR using ADRDSSU utility JCL.

JCL:

//STEP0010 EXEC PGM=ADRDSSU

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

//DUMP1 DD DSN=SYSUSR1.DMPIODFn.Work,

// DSORG=PS,UNIT=SYSDA,

// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),

// VOLUME=SER=USER01,

// SPACE=(CYL,(10))

//SYSIN DD *

DUMP DATASET(INCLUDE( -

SYS1.IODF0n.WORK.CLUSTER -

))-

OUTDDNAME(DUMP1) ALLDATA(*) ALLX SPHERE DYNALLOC TOL(ENQF)


2. Convert the dump file to XMIT (TSO TRANSMIT) format.

XMIT EXPNET.SYSUSR1 DATASET('SYSUSR1.DMPIODF3') OUTDSN('SYSUSR1.XMTIODF3')


3. Download the XMIT file to Windows PC using FTP in binary mode.


4. Allocate the dataset 'SYSUSR1.XMTIODF3' on LPAR2 with the same attributes as in LPAR1.


5. Upload the binary file from Windows PC to the dataset 'SYSUSR1.XMTIODFn' on LPAR2.


6. Receive the uploaded file to recreate the original dump dataset 'SYSUSR1.DMPIODF3' on LPAR2.

RECEIVE INDATASET('SYSUSR1.XMTIODF3')


7. Restore the ‘SYS1.IODF0n.WORK’ cluster on LPAR2 using ADRDSSU utility JCL.

JCL:

//STEP011 EXEC PGM=ADRDSSU

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

//BACKUP DD UNIT=SYSDA,DISP=SHR,DSN=SYSUSR1.DMPIODF3

RESTORE DS(INCLUDE( -

SYS1.IODF03.WORK.** -

)) -

8. Recreate the ‘SYS1.IODF03’ cluster from the WORK cluster via HCD Panels.
