QUESTION: 

We currently update a library named IC.MACLIB via a move processor.  On our development Endevor DEVL is an 

alias for SYS2.INFOCNTR.DEVEL.MACLIB.  The remote location is IC.MACLIB (which is the real library).  

When we do a ship the mapping rules are mapped IC.MACLIB to IC.MACLIB.  The problem is that the alias of

SYS2.INFOCNTR.DEVL.MACLIB  cannot be found on the production lpar (target of the ship).  What needs to be

changed?

 

Answer:

ANSWER: 

In order to get the package ship to run with no errors you need to change the mapping rules 

from:

IC.MACLIB on the sending system to IC.MACLIB on the remote system.

to:

SYS2.INFOCNTR.DEVL.MACLIB on the sending system to IC.MACLIB on the remote system.

The change is required to have to the original file (SYS2.INFOCNTR.DEVL.MACLIB on host)

to alias file IC.MACLIB (on the remote).
