RE: Saving Spool Files for a Migration



fixed

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.

Subject: Saving Spool Files for a Migration

 I have a client on a 620 running 5.2 moving to an i5 running 5.3. 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
