Error Description

See Customer Problem Description.                              

Problem Summary

It is important to keep all systems in a BRMS network at the    
same level of BRMS PTFs.                                        
Fixes included in this PTF may reference enhancements. More    
information on these enhancements can be found on the BRMS web  
page:                                                          
www.ibm.com/developerworks/ibmi/brms                            
Additionally also review the media web page:                    
www.ibm.com/developerworks/ibmi/media                          
                                                               
Fixes in this PTF:                                              
1. In V7R1 and above, support has been added to the IBM        
Navigator for i to allow the following BRMS tasks to be        
scheduled:                                                      
    - New backup control groups                                
    - New move policy                                          
    - Save of all save files                                    
2. In V5R4 and above, when the Duplicate Media using BRM        
(DUPMEDBRM) command is used to duplicate a BRMS volume and the  
output sequence spans volumes, the save timestamp of saved item
may be incorrect. This can cause expiration or deletion of these
saved items to fail with message MSGMCH3601.                    
3. In V7R1 and above, if the Start Maintenance for BRM          
(STRMNTBRM) command is run while BRMS backups are being run in  
other jobs, maintenance may corrupt the save history for the    
active backups.                                                
4. In V6R1 and above, performance has been improved when doing  
backups using control groups containing *LNKOMTLTS and/or      
*LTSOMTONL entries to save Domino objects.                      
5. In V7R1 and above, backups may send message MSGBRM170A for  
the output volume. This problem will be fixed after running    
maintenance.                                                    
6. In V6R1 and above, support has been added to allow          
incremental saves to be restored, without restoring a full save,
when *SAVDATE is specified for the Save level (SAVLVL) parameter
on the Restore Library using BRM (RSTLIBBRM) command.          
To enable this function in current job, run the following      
commands in the same job:                                      
CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QTEMP/Q1AALWPART) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(1)          
To enable this function in all jobs, run the following commands
in any job:                                                    
CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QUSRBRM/Q1AALWPART) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(1)        
7. In V5R4 and above, when viewing save history created by a    
SAVxxxBRM command, the output from the Work with Media          
Information (WRKMEDIBRM) command will show an incorrect date for
the Expiate Date field if the expiration date is greater than  
2038.                                                          
8. In V5R4 and above, when *BKU is specified for the File group
type (GRPTYPE) parameter on the Duplicate Media using BRM      
(DUPMEDBRM) command, saved items with a save type of *CUML,    
*INCR and *QBRM are not duplicated.                            
9. In V6R1 and above, when multiple restores are started using  
the Start Recovery using BRM (STRRCYBRM) command, it may cause  
the Restore Deferred Objects (RSTDFROBJ) command to be run. If  
the STRRCYBRM command is used to submit the restores to batch,  
the RSTDFROBJ command may be run before the restore batch jobs  
complete. Objects that are restored after the RSTDFROBJ command
is run will not be processed by the RSTDFROBJ command.          
10. In V5R4 and above, when viewing Saved Items using the Work  
with Media Information (WRKMEDIBRM) command, the Save Type field
may be incorrectly set to *FILE.                                
11. In V5R4 and above, when *SCHHST is specified for the From  
volume identifier (VOL) parameter on the Duplicate Media using  
BRM (DUPMEDBRM) command, message MSGCPA4268 may be in the job  
log.                                                            
12. In V5R4 and above, when spooled files are restored from a  
Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) server using the Work with Media  
Information (WRKMEDIBRM) command, message MSGCPF3795 may be in  
the job log.                                                    
13. In V5R4 and above, detached journal receivers created by    
BRMS processes may not be deleted when running the Start        
Maintenance for BRM (STRMNTBRM) command with *YES specified for
the Change BRM journal receivers (CHGJRN) parameter.            
14. In V5R4 and above, media is not expired correctly if message
MSGBRM0010 with reason 1 is in the job log when running the    
Start Maintenance for BRM (STRMNTBRM) command with *YES        
specified for the Expire media (EXPMED) parameter.              
15. In V5R4 and above, save files in library QUSRBRM with names
like Q######### (where '#' is a number) may not be correctly    
deleted by the Start Maintenance for BRM (STRMNTBRM) command.  
16. In V5R4 and above, the Display ASP Information using BRM    
(DSPASPBRM) command may not show correct information for an IASP
that is varied-on.                                              
17. In V5R4 and above, the Start Backup using BRM (STRBKUBRM)  
command may force a full backup for a *LINK control group entry
when an incremental backup is attempted.                        
18. In V5R4 and above, when the Work with Media Information    
(WRKMEDIBRM) command is run and option 4 is selected to remove a
Saved Item, it may fail with message MSGCPF5032, MSGSQL0913 or  
MSGCPF9803.                                                    
19. In V5R4 and above, performance has been improved for remote
operations. For example, if the From system (FROMSYS) parameter
is used on a BRMS command.                                      
20. In V5R4 and above, the Work with Media using BRM (WRKMEDBRM)
command may not display all the volumes enrolled in the BRMS    
inventory.                                                      
21. In V5R4 and above, when attempting to restore individual    
objects using the Work with Media Information (WRKMEDIBRM)      
command and then taking options 9, 9, 9, 7 for a saved item    
created by duplicating a parallel save, objects may not be      
listed.                                                        
22. In V5R4 and above, when installing the BRMS product using  
the Initialize BRMS (INZBRM) command with OPTION(*RUNPRDINZ)    
before the Initialize BRMS (INZBRM) command with                
OPTION(*ESTPRDINZ) has been run, message MSGMCH3601 may be in  
the joblog.                                                    
23. In V5R4 and V6R1, when option 4 is selected to change a BRMS
network group after running the Work with Policies using BRM    
(WRKPCYBRM) command with parameter TYPE(*SYS), the Receive media
info field may not be correct. Additionally, some BRMS          
information may not be correctly synchronized throughout the    
BRMS network. For example, if running remote duplication using  
the Duplicate Media using the BRM (DUPMEDBRM) command, media    
information from the duplication may not be correctly          
synchronized.                                                  
24. In V5R4 and above, support has been added to allow devices  
to be selected in order by English (CCSID 37) characters when  
*MEDCLS is specified for a device. To enable this function, run
the following command:                                          
CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QUSRBRM/Q1ATAPSLCT) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(1)

  Enable the BRMS plug-in for System i Navigator Windows/OS    
  client.                                                      
  ==== Pre-V6R1:                                                
  1) Close the System i Navigator application.                  
  2) On the client/PC, uninstall the BRMS plug-in using the    
Client
