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


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

zmprov gdlm > distlist.txt 

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

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

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