It depends - my pharmaceutical client [subject to FDA validation requirements] has Dev and Test on a Development LPAR, Prod on a Production LPAR. This passes muster for all legal requirements...

What constitutes separate DEV, TEST, & PROD environments at your organization?

Must they exist on separate LPARS? Separate boxes?

Or can they all exist on one LPAR with adequate border fences?

Would it be practical to exist on one LPAR and still comply with SOX and GAAP and a typical big auditing company's security audit?

Or is that not possible in the Iseries world with the antiquated only one level of libraries and such?

Thanks in advance!
