Another option is to use one of the HA vendors to mirror the data and
refresh. So with PowerHA for example you'd set up the data as a replica
of production. Once it's current you *DETACH replication and then use it
on the test machine as long as you'd like. When ready to refresh simply
*REATTACH and PowerHA will bring everything up to current. Then *DETACH
again and use it.
If your data is on SAN it's even better because then you can simply
flashcopy production and there you have it. AND you can make multiple
flash copies so each developer thinks they have their own copy!

I am not an LPAR expert and was hoping for a little advice. I have a
box with 3 LPARS. One production, one test and one development.
I am looking for advice on the most straight forward way of refreshing
the test LPAR from production. Is there a way that I could automate? If
so, how? FWIW - the library names are the same in both test and production.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
