An approach to online backup using BRMS: IBM WebSphere Portal Express 7.0.0.1 on IBM i V7R1

Learn how to perform a full backup of a portal profile while it is online and functional, using the Backup Recovery and Media Services (BRMS) for the IBM i operating system (IBM i), a strategic backup maintenance and tape management product. We use the example of IBM WebSphere Portal Express on the IBM i platform, focusing on the WebSphere Portal Express 7.0.0.x and IBM i i5/OS V7R1 / V7R1M1 profile and platform versions, although it can be tailored to other versions on the IBM i with no or minimal change.
