Wouldn't this approach take multiple times as long as FTP'ing a save
file? If he already has an issue with time, this would entail even
And, the test system would be unusable during the transfer (to
prevent any file locks since the CPYF would require exclusive use of
each file) correct?
The FTP approach he is estimating at 20 hours, wouldn't a
record-by-record CPYF thru a DDM pipe take many multiples of that
Hopefully I am wrong, but it seems that SAVOBJ is 10 times faster
than CPYF on a LOCAL machine (even with FROMRCD(1)). If a DDM pipe
is introduced, that is even more of a bottleneck I would think.

If all you are interested in is copying the data from production
to development and you already have the physical and logical files
on the development system try using a combination of DDM and CPYF.
