Four Hundred Guru--Admin Alert: Moving Libraries Between i5/OS Partitions, Part 1

For i5, iSeries, and AS/400 administrators, it's common to move libraries between partitions or machines. Library duplication is necessary when you're creating or updating data in a test partition, moving software libraries between machines, or migrating information from an existing partition to a new machine in advance of an upgrade. Whatever your migration situation, there are definite steps for easily transferring libraries between environments.

When performing library duplication, you generally need to perform the following five steps for a successful transfer.

Prepping the data to be moved

Saving the library to be moved

Transferring the saved library to the new partition or machine

Restoring the saved library to the target machine

Checking your results

These steps are fairly intuitive and easy to follow, as long as you avoid a few pitfalls
