Patrik -

We want to create a copy of a data library on a separate partition from our
production data so we would need at least one member to exist in each

A REXX script that checks whether or not an object exists would not help us
since the entire library is being restored to a fresh partition - we
already know that it doesn't exist, we just don't want to restore the
production data to the new partition.

On V7R3 - is there a way to SAVLIB/SAVOBJ a library containing files,
queues, data areas, etc. on one machine/partition and RSTLIB/RSTOBJ the
library to another machine/partition without restoring the data in the
files, data areas, data queues, etc.?

About files: It's possible to do a savlib and exclude all members. If it
does what you want, dunno. About the rest: Not possible, AFAIK.

Did you think about automating this task by, say, a REXX script or the
like which checks if an object exists? If not, create. If yes, skip and
continue. So you'd have one definition of data and can run it everywhere.
If you want to have these recreated on test, do another REXX script which
deletes everything you want to be recreated.
