SNADS can be used to transfer spool files. The USERID will be changed to the USERID of the receiving user on the receiving system. I don't know what other attributes are affected. TAATOOLS has a spool file archive facility that claims to preserve the attributes. There are other commercial products that can transfer/archive spool files.

We need to move around a 1,000 spoolfiles to te new box. We need to make sure that all the external attributes are restored as well, so a simple copy to a pf and restore isn't going to cut it. This will be a once or maybe twice deal. I don't need something very fancy, but functional since it's a 1 time deal. What has the group here used? Will BRMS at 5.2 handle spoolfiles? I've heard that the spoolfile restore is terrible in BRMS, at least time wise. Thanks _____________________ Kirk Goins CCNA Systems Engineer, Manage Inc.
