be posted when all objects in a library are set to be omitted.  
5. In 7.1 and later, when *LOAD is specified in a backup control

FlashCopy mode for the PTF to apply.                            
To verify the FlashCopy status of a system is *END, enter the  
following command:                                              
   CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('FLSSYSSTS ' '*DISPLAY')          
                                                               
After the BRMS PTF is installed, do the following to enable the
BRMS plug-in for the IBM Systems Director Navigator for i5/OS  
(web browser) or System i Navigator windows client.            
                                                               
  Enable the BRMS plug-in for the IBM Systems Director Navigator
  for i5/OS.                                                    
  ==== V6R1 and newer only:                                    
  Note:  ending the http admin servers may affect other non-BRMS

      ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)                  
    2. Wait for the http admin server jobs to end or terminate  
  them.                                                        
      Use command:  WRKACTJOB SBS(QHTTPSVR)                    
    3. Restart the http admin servers:                          
      STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)
