Re: How to use i navigator to copy image catalog data between systems



fixed

Saving the image files to a savf or virtual tape first ensures the
directory structure is preserved as well, remembering that the
directory structure on the target has to match the directory structure
on the source in order to use the image catalog on the target without
re-creating it.

I'm getting that the difference in approach is that Rob FTPs the bin
files over then basically recreates the image catalog. The alternative
approach is to restore the image catalog object and then restore the
files contained in the image catalog in such a way as to not require
the catalog to be recreated.

I generally use SAVRSTOBJ on internal systems otherwise is use tape or
save file to save the image catalog and image catalog data (the bin
files) that way we need just two restore commands and the image
catalog just works. For me that's preferable to having to recreate the
image catalog (ore rebuild the entries) each time. It also preserves
the name and description of the image catalog which we to assist in
managing catalog sets - for instance we keep the group level of a ptf
group in the description.

repeat until all .bin files are processed.

I see no need, advantage, etc of saving to save files first. In fact I
see that as a huge waste of time and a gargantuan waste of disk.

Thanks Jim - FTP it is.

Rob, the image catalog itself is saved to a savf for transport to another
system.
