Mainframe LPAR Refresh

Mainframe LPAR Refresh
Dist,

We are in the process of cloning the production LPAR A in to another new LPAR B.

The LPAR B would be used by the application for testing and should be refreshed once in the Month.

Currently we are planning to use Volume Dump the LPAR A and Restore it in LPAR B.

Please let me know if there are any better approach to do this and also any tools to clone mainframe LPAR to another.

Thanks !!!

There is more than one way to skin a ...

The process you describe will work as long as the source subsystem is down at the time of the copy ... If it is up you are likely to end up with a mess.
