As long as FDRCOPY is used to make an exact copy of the CA Top Secret BDAM Security File, FDRCOPY can be used to copy the file.

As long as FDRCOPY is used to make an exact copy of the CA Top Secret VSAM Companion Security File, FDRCOPY can be used to copy the file.

The CA Top Secret files should never be copied while CA Top Secret is actively using them.

The backup CA Top Secret BDAM Security File and the backup CA Top Secret VSAM Companion Security File should be copied instead.

Another option is to bring CA Top Secret completely down before attempting to copying the primary CA Top Secret BDAM Security File and the backup CA Top Secret VSAM Companion Security File.
