Issue:
How do I copy my CA History file from one system to another. I've already copied the PRODUCT.LIBRARY but can't find a utility to Backup the History file from one system and Restore it to another.

 
Resolution:
If you have access to the source and target disks from the new system you could use FCOPY to copy the history file.
The source and target disks must be the same type.

Example:

// JOB COPYHST 
// DLBL DISKI,'CAI.PRODUCT.HISTORY' 
// EXTENT SYS004,oldvol 
// ASSGN SYS004,DISK,VOL=oldvol,SHR 

// DLBL DISKO,'CAI.PRODUCT.HISTORY' 
// EXTENT SYS005,newvol,1,000,nnn,nn 
// ASSGN SYS005,DISK,VOL=newvol,SHR 

// SETPFIX LIMIT=500K 
// EXEC FCOPY 
COPY INFILE=DISKI OUTFILE=DISKO REORGANIZE LIST
