Introduction:
How do I clone an SMP/E zone in the same CSI?
I want to create a maintenance zone (DCOMMNT) based on the target zone (DCOMTGT).
ZONECOPY and ZONEEXPORT / ZONEIMPORT don't work on the same CSI.
Instructions:
The SMP/E ZONEMERGE command will do this, It can copy one zone to another in the same CSI.

Syntax is:
SET BOUNDARY (DCOMMNT) .
ZONEMERGE(DCOMTGT ) INTO(DCOMMNT ) CONTENT DEFINITION REPLACE.

You then need to make a copy of the target datasets CABDLOAD and CABDMAC and rename the DDDEF entries in the new zone DCOMMNT.
Additional Information:
See IBM documentation on ZONEMERGE.
