A User's Experience Moving a Large Application from One Sysplex to Another Sysplex

It is not uncommon to be asked to move an application from one sysplex to another, but that task could be somewhat daunting depending on how intertwined the application is with the other applications running in that sysplex. There are many things to consider. Is the disk data for that application intermingled with the data from other applications? How about the tape data? Along with the application data, catalog entries, tape management catalog entries, Tape Configuration Database (TCDB) entries, security database entries, and several other types of metadata and product specific information must be extracted from the source sysplex and merged into the target sysplex.
The speaker has just completed the move of a very large application from one sysplex to another. He will present his experiences with this project. He will primarily focus on the tasks associated with moving the data and all of the associated metadata associated with the application being moved, but he will also discuss some of the other things that had to be considered.-Michael E.
