Is there a way to copy a FDT from a test database to a production database?
Test ADAULD UNLOAD file with NUMREC=0
Prod ADALOD LOAD
o you don’t want the test data
o this is a new file for prod (above won’t work for FDT updates)
o if you use Natural you’ll get the DDM to prod
(assuming you need a DDM to RUN or STOW in prod)
You can generate FDT from Predict.
But don’t you have a standard change control process with audit trails etc to do this type of thing?
Another option is
Test ADASAV SAVE FILE=xxx,UTYPE=EXU
Prod ADASAV RESTORE FMOVE=xxx
Prod ADADBS REFRESH FILE=xxx
That will give you FDT and filename and component allocation (AC/NI/UI/DS) to the test size …
