Transfer files from one environment to another without closing all other AS/400 sessions

On the AS/400 system, close all sessions in the receiving envrionment when transferring files from one environment to another if the sessions hold exclusive locks.

I have created two environments within the AS/400 system. One environment is development and the other is production.

Every night a job runs, transferring a few menu files from the development environment to the production environment. Before running this job, is it mandatory to close all of the AS/400 sessions in the production environment?

Will the transfer of the files slow down or affect the job execution process if a user has opened an AS/400 session in the development environment, or if a user has not properly closed an AS/400 session?

Whether or not the transfer of the file will affect the job execution process depends on the situation. Every environment is different.

If the AS/400 sessions do not hold exclusive locks, then the transfer of the file will probably not affect the job execution process. If the AS/400 sessions do hold exclusive locks, the transfer of the file will probably affect the job execution process.
