Question:
Need to move the security files to a different volume.

These are the ddnames of the files that need to be moved.
SECFILE

VSAMAIX
VSMPATH
BACKUP
VSAMBKUP 
Answer:
Copying the security file is documented in the TSS manuals at the following link:

The same steps can be used to copy the backup security file VSAMBKUP and BACKUP but TSSMAINB is used instead of TSSMAINS and VSAMDEF6 is used instead of VSAMDEF3.
