Hi, I have two environments created in AS/400 system. One is Dveleopment and the other is Production.Both has unqiue IP address. There is a job that runs in Production Env. that extracts the objects from Development Env. and updates in its environment. While running this job, is it required to ensure that no AS/400 sessions are active in Production Env.?? Object being transferred is a menu file from Development to Production. The user in Production Env. might be using the menus while the job is running. Will this not transfer the objects and will the job end? Is it advisable to close all the AS/400 sesions in Development Env. while the job is running?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

A lot would depend on how your update job works. The chances are that you won’t be able to replace the menu file because it’s locked by your users. I would recommend that you run this with no users active.

Hi Gilbert,

Thanks for your response. Well I found out that menus were not updated when active sessions open.
Can you briefly let me know the process as to how I can identify active users and kill their sessions?

    to cut down time you could perform the copy and restore the object under a different name. Then kick everyone off long enough to delete the object and rename the newly restored version.
