We are separating our PROD & TEST boxes geographically.
There is approx 30 gig of data & objects to copy.
People in my organization are convinced that tape is the only method given
the data volume. But tape is cumbersome; takes several days to transport,
tapes go missing, must be logged out, logged-in, etc.
What other strategies should be considered?
Would the following work well (FTP instead of tape transport)?
1) PROD: SAVLIB to *SAVF
2) ARP-ZIP to compress *SAVF
3) FTP from iseries PROD box to distant TEST box
4) RSTLIB to TEST box
Is it possible that 30 gig could be moved in a few hours? Or is that
Any suggestions such as further details or better ideas?
