Move Pool Workstation without having to create Mirror Pool

We need to have the ability to move a Pool Workstation around between Dynamic Domain Managers (DDM) without having to create a mirror of it on the target DDM. This would be MDM to DDM or even DDM to DDM. The benefit of this would be to avoid all the work required to create the complete mirror of the pool and to avoid the impacts this causes across JNextPlan. The list of work that can be avoided by making this available is: • Create a mirror of the pool on the DDM • Extract Resources defined on the pool, edit and import • Extract Job Streams and Jobs defined to the pool, edit and import • Extract pool Jobs included in other Job Streams, (Job Stream wks and Job wks don’t match), edit and import • Extract the Job Streams that include the above jobs, edit and update • Extract Job Streams that are dependent on Job Streams/Jobs on the pool, edit and update • Extract Job Streams that have opens deps for files on the pool, edit and update • Extract all jobs that the task line references the pool, edit and update • Update all SSC Services that reference the pool • Update our JCL on the Mainframe that references the pool
