With the information in this thread, I have just now been able to get
an RPG program on one LPAR to read and update a file on a different
LPAR using a DDM file wrapped in a CL (for the OPNDBF and OVRDBF
commands).

<<SNIP>> I can't just treat the unadorned DDMF as though it were a PF
or table. Now *that* would be simple. <<SNIP>>

Recalling my experience, the use of a DDMFile was quite seamless; both the RPG compile and the RPG run-time acted on the DDMF the same as if acting on a local version of the Physical File or the Logical File [aside from some extra messaging about DDM conversations IIRC], and neither of Open Database File (OPNDBF) nor Override With Database File (OVRDBF) were required [although those commands could be used if so inclined or the design of the application benefits from doing so, such as dynamically naming which member].
