Question:

Our site currently has two separate Endevor configurations, which are planned to be merged. What would be the best way to merge the two ACMQ files?

Answer:

Unfortunately, the ACMQ Root and XREF files cannot be merged by the IDCAMS utility. The most efficient way of accomplishing the merger would be to run STEP 1 of BC1JACML, which builds the component lists for the smaller of the two environments. Then use the output file (ACMCOMP) from step 1 as input to step2, which executes BC1PACMO. In step 2, one needs to use the copy of C1DEFLTS that points to the existing ACMQ ROOT and XREF files of the larger environment and the program will merge the new data with the old.
