Rob -

CRTDUPOBJ is actually where the thought first crossed my mind. I expected
to see a similar parm on the SAVLIB/SAVOBJ command which would only save
the structure of the library and not the data.

I guess we'll perform a SAVLIB and RSTLIB then CLRPFM on all files in the
newly restored library.

Thanks,

If you're going to write a script I would recommend looking at
OBJECT_STATISTICS and SYSPARTITIONSTAT. Remember, in database parlance a
member is a partition.

But something about the OP's request is waking a brain cell somewhere.
Like it sounds familiar but I'm not seeing anything. Something like the
CRTDUPOBJ has this parameter:
Duplicate data . . . . . . . . . DATA *NO, *YES

Hello Steve,

On V7R3 - is there a way to SAVLIB/SAVOBJ a library containing files,
data
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.
