Part of your problem is the fact that you're restoring into a different
library. As describe in detail by Chuck Pence on this list in the past,
the RSTxxx code only supports X-LIB logicals when they are restored into
libraries of the same name as the original.

When restoring into the same name, you simply run the RSTxxx twice. The
second time picks up the deferred objects.

Unless you very carefully control and monitor the source, I suspect you'll
be continuously fighting this battle.

I assume the target LPAR already has a set of the libraries you are trying
to restore which is why you're trying to restore to another name.
That being the case, have you considered an independent disk pool (iASP)?
This would allow you to have multiple DBs on the system; meaning you could
have a library of the same name on each DB.

The reason for the failure is that the LF was not in the same library as

I added 2 changes to the automated process.

2) Immediately following the RSTLIBBRM, I added QSYS/RMVDFRID DFRID(*ALL).
(This cleared the DFRID for all future RSTLIBBRM.

My questions are how do most handle or code for the DFRID issue?
Depending on the scenario, sometimes the issue can be resolved by moving
the LF to the correct library and then SAVRSTOBJ only the LF that failed.
Other times, the entire process may be restarted from scratch.

A future check I intend is to identify any X-LIB LF on source LPAR A, move
the LF to the same library as the PF, thus eliminating any DFRID due to
