Can I load several DB2 Tables using LISTDEF and a TEMPLATE? If so, can I see some examples(s)?

Hi all,
I have unload (using LISTDEF & TEMPLATing) a DB2 database of several tablespace/tables and associated SYSPUNCH cards. I will like to use LISTDEF and a Template to load the tables data into my test environment.
How can I do this? Is there other ways to do this? Any example(s) to guide me how to code the JCL, etc etc

I will appreciate any and all suggestions?

Thanks

sure you can do that
you just use all your syspunch files as input
you can do something like this

//SYSIN DD *
//          DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYSPUNCH1
//          DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYSPUNCH2
//          DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYSPUNCH3

momi_sabag,

Thanks for yur respons. I have not done this before so a little more detailed example will be heavenly. For example, how to code the template the LOAD process uses, how to code the LISTDEFDD command for the LOAD and any other pointers that you think I should be aware of.

If I could get IEBGENER or any of the DFHSMS utilities like IEBUPTE or IEBCOPY to copy all the SYSPUNCH into a single file, I knw of a way to do what I need to do.

Any comments and recommendation will be welcomed.

Thanks

moni_sabq,
 
Let me clarify what I am trying to accomplish.
Your suggestion willl work but I don't want to have to hard code tablespace name every so often. I can create a SYSPUNCH dataset using the template whether it is a GDG based dataset or a simple sequential file. I can dynamically create a file (lets call it FILEA) containing all the SYSPUNCH file names that I generated from doing an UNLOAD. THe whole idea is not to have to hard code tablespace name each and everytime a tablespace is added or dropped. I simply read my SYSTABLESPACE, extract the tablespace I am after, build according to the SYSPUNCH naming convention used during UNLOAD, feed
this FILEA to SYSUT1 such as the following:

//S01OF99 EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD DUMMY
//SYSUT1 DD DSN=FILEA,DISP=OLD
//SYSUT2 DD DSN=SOMENAME,DISP=(,CATLG)

I want IEBGENER to read FILEA and copy the actual SYSPUNCH contoll statements of each name registered in FILEA to to 1 single file named in SYSUT2. In order words merge all files. The contents of FILEA is just a list of files to copy into SYSUT2 and the structure will look like this:

FILEA:

DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SCAM1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SCJR1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SDNF1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SGAJ1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SGCT1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SMSR1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SNAK1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SOFC1.PUNCH
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SGO11.PUNCH

When I tried this method, IEBGENER errors-out with this message:

DATA SET UTILITY - GENERATE      
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SCAM1.PUNCH
IEB336I       INVALID COMMAND IN COL. 07      
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SCJR1.PUNCH
IEB336I       INVALID COMMAND IN COL. 07      
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SDNF1.PUNCH
IEB336I       INVALID COMMAND IN COL. 07
DD DISP=SHR,DSN=GO1.FDEV1.OSCR.D1UNL.GO1SGAJ1.PUNCH

What do I need to correct the error and make this work.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

it seems that you can't use a template for sysin so you will have to either copy all the syspunch files into a single file, or concatenate them one to the other like i wrote in the previous comment

when you do the unload, don't use a gdg file
have a single syspunch file and your life will be simpler
