Backup Recovery and Media Services (5770-BR1)
Prior to upgrading BRMS
It is important to ensure no user created dependencies exist on BRMS files in QUSRBRM before upgrading BRMS. Use DSPDBR on all physical and logical files in QUSRBRM to ensure only IBM BRMS files are listed. If any other non-IBM dependencies exits, they need to be removed before starting an upgrade.
If using OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) on any BRMS commands, it is recommended that the current outfiles be deleted prior to upgrading or after upgrading to a new release. Changes to files may have occurred and new fields added or changed.
BRMS client changes
The BRMS client has converted some client panels for better performance and appearance. Because of this, the BRMS client is only supported through IBM® Navigator for i.
SAVLIBBRM command changes
The Save Library using BRM (SAVLIBBRM) command default for the Journaled objects (OBJJRN) parameter has changed to *YES.
