This article explains how to export a distribution list from one server, and import it to a different server.


Resolution

1. First we export&save all members from distribution list called "dist_list1" to a text file:

zmprov gdlm dist_list1@domain.com > distlist.txt 


2. Then we move the file to the other server (using scp fro example) and run:

for i in `cat distlist.txt | egrep -v '#|members'`;do zmprov adlm dist_list2@domain.com $i;done 


The above command imports all members from the "dist_list1" distribution list, into the "dist_list2" distribution list on the second server.
