I have to recreate an LF over a PF. The LF has MAINT(*DLY). The PF has over 3 millions records. When we start the function CRTLF, it maxs out our CPU. Now, we can reproduce it on our test box so that it won't damage the response time. My question is: Once it is created on the testbox, how will I restore it to the production box without having to recreate it?
The least amount of impact that I am aware of is to remove the member and restore the object. Add the member back after the object has been restored. This does not prevent an impact on resources while the access path is being built. Be aware that REBUILD(*DLY) will rebuild the entire access path every time you access the LF.
