How can I copy my user definitions from one TPX into another?
Here are the necessary steps to copy user definitions from one TPX to another:
1. Extract the records from your backup with:
EXTRACT GIVING(TPXDATA) USER ALL SESSIONS (UIDXNAME(xxxxxxxx))
xxxxxxxx is the filter for the userids. If you want to copy all users then use eight dashes --------. If you want to copy only all users starting with L then use L------- for xxxxxxxx.
2. Delete the user in your TPX online or via TPXBATCH
3. Stop the TPX region in which you just deleted the user
4. REPRO the data from the extract file into your running ADMIN2 files
Use a JCL like this:
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//INDS DD DSN=AAA.BBB.EXTRACT,DISP=SHR
//OUTDS DD DSN=TPX.ADMIN2,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
REPRO INFILE(INDS) OUTFILE(OUTDS) REPLACE
Remember that these operations are done at your own risk! Make sure you have a backup in case you get problems after having copied the data!
