I decided to create a CLP with all the device descriptions and compile
it, then CALL the program.
It worked like a charm. Thanks for the many suggestions from everyone.
My next task is to FTP the CLP source to the other LPARS and repeat the

My preferred way is to put your configuration into a CLP. You can
compile and then execute the CLP to create the devices. If saved, you
can then recreate the devices by running the program again for DR
If you have the devices created on another partition or system, you can
retrieve the device descriptions into a source file and then change the
type to CLP. You will just need to insert the PGM and ENDPGM command at
the start / end of the source member.
This will pull the configuration source for all devices that start with

I have over 100 printers to define to a given LPAR and I would like to
do this using an in stream member with multiply CRTDEVPRT commands as
1. Can this be done and how would this be executed (PGM, Utility, etc)
2. What type of file would be used to create this?
I'm new to this platform and my background is on the Z-Series, so please
forgive me if my terminology to not correct.
I would like to keep this very simple, if possible.
