This package copy (DDR) the specified dasds of a running zVM system. After the copy, all dasds are renamed to a new volser, based on a prefix (3 or 4 letters), and update (source and compiled) USER DIRECT and the SYSTEM CONFIG on the new dasds. The new set of dasds is a backup of the original zVM and can be IPLed without duplicate volsers.

The new volsers (6 positions) are the prefix padded with the remainder letters of the original dasds, right justified. Ex. Using "BKP" as prefix, the new "610RES" will be renamed to "BKPRES".

One file, CLONEBKP CONFIG, is supplied as a model how to specify the prefix and the Input/Output dasds.
