IBM Partnership


Backup, Recovery, and Media Services (BRMS)

Version: PTF 7.4 SI71876, 7.3 SI71875, 7.2 SI71874
Enhancements

In version 7.2 and later:

  • BRMS enhanced the INZBRM OPTION(*FLASHCOPY) STATE(*STRPRC) processing to end the BRMS Enterprise subsystem named Q1ABRMENT.
  • BRMS now provides a Reclaim Media (Q1ARCLMED) API to reclaim a single tape volume.
  • Improved the IFS backup outfile processing performance.
  • To display the cloud retain media retention period the following command can be run:
    CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('CLOUD ' 'RETAINDATA' 'S' 'mmmmmmmmmm' '*DSP')
    where 'mmmmmmmmmm' is the move policy name.
Other Fixes

In version 7.2 and later:

  • RSTBRM may fail with MSGBRM1688.
  • ANZLIBBRM may incorrectly report MSGCD3105 and MSGCPF9899.
  • RSTLICPGM LICPGM(5770BR1) may fail with MSGCPF3D95.
  • STRMNTBRM may fail MSGCPF501B.
  • The GUI Web Enterprise Feature and INZBRM *VFYSYS may incorrectly report connection failures when using secured DDM with mixed case passwords.
  • BRMS restores running longer with the job in MSGW and the call stack ending with Q1AMS and QMHRCVPM.
  • DUPMEDBRM with the parameter TOENDOPT(*UNLOAD) may not unload all of the target volumes.
  • Restoring *SAVSECDTA from a cloud backup using STRRCYBRM or WRKMEDIBRM appears to be in a loop as it repeats the restore 99 times.
  • In 7.2 and later, changes were made in BRMS to address potential security concerns. Existing user profiles used to perform BRMSoperations may require changes to allow proper access by using the SETUSRBRM command with the USAGE(*AUT) parameter. Note: *SECADM authority is required to use the SETUSRBRM command.

In version 7.4:

  • Upgrades with DSLO media may fail with MSGCPD377C causing 5770SS1 option 3 to go into an *ERROR state.
