may select incorrect volume(s).                                

Problem Conclusion

Load and apply this PTF.                                        
Note: When loading BRMS PTFs, the system needs to be out of    
FlashCopy mode for the PTF to apply.                            
To verify the FlashCopy status of a system is *END, enter the  
following command:                                              
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.                                                    
  Note:  ending the http admin servers may affect other non-BRMS
  From System i:                                                
    1. Enter the command to end the http admin servers:        
      ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)                  
    2. Wait for the http admin server jobs to end or terminate  
      Use command:  WRKACTJOB SBS(QHTTPSVR)                    
    3. Restart the http admin servers:                          
      STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)                  
  Enable the BRMS plug-in for System i Navigator Windows/OS    
  1) Close the System i Navigator application.                  
  2) Open a Windows Command Prompt screen.                      
  3) Enter the following command:                              
      cwbinplg /REMOVE=IBM.BRMSPlugin                          
  4) On the client/PC, start the iSeries Navigator.            
  5) Use the System i Navigator "Install Options->Install      
      action. This action is available from the main System i  
      Navigator "File" menu and the "My Connections" folder    
      context/pop-up menu.  When prompted for the iSeries system
      to install from, select the iSeries that has the new BRMS
      PTF installed.
