Another thing to check to be sure is that you don't have cross attached logical files. Meaning a logical that is in "TEST" while pointing to "PROD" data. I can't count how many times I have pointed out to folks that they have created these crossed logicals in the test environment and they steadfastly deny it was done. The database always says the truth when asked about these types of references.

On a restore the logical would rebuild, so while I would follow Luis' advice, I would check the cross attachments as well.

Jerry,

Check the value of the ACCPTH parameter in your SAVOBJ or SAVLIB command.
