The Copy Profound UI Instance (PUICPYINST) tool lets you make a duplicate copy of a Profound UI instance. The copy will include all of the patches, configuration and customizations you made to the instance that you copied from. You can use the copy to test a Profound UI upgrade or patch before applying it to your main instance, or any other time that you would like a copy of an instance.
PUICPYINST is a command that can be run from a "green-screen" (5250) command line or from a program running in batch.
Note: In order to use the PUICPYINST command, you must have the library where you installed Profound UI (or one of the libraries if you have it installed multiple times) in your library list. By default, this library is called PROFOUNDUI, but you have the option to select a different library name during installation. Add whichever library name you used when you installed Profound UI to your library list before running the PUICPYINST command.
Help is provided for the PUICPYINST command using the F1=Help online help facility. To view the help, type the command name at the command line without pressing the Enter key. Then press F1 and the help screen will be shown.
Example: Copy a Profound UI instance named PROFOUNDUI on port 8080 to another instance named PUITEST on port 8081
