We learned that the XMIT utility allows you to transmit encrypted records from one JES2 node to another JES2 node in clear format.
In other words, if you want to send an encrypted file from one sysplex to another sysplex you don’t need to de-encrypt it first. You can XMIT the file and it will decrypt it under the covers for you and the receiver will get the file in clear format.
Note to Reader: On the receiving system, the user needs to make sure that they have correct authority to access the target dataset via the applicable RACF dataset profile so that they can store the received copy of the file.
