Error Description

Please load and apply the September 2020 PTF.                  

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 wiki:                                            
Fixes in this PTF:                                              
1. In 7.2 and later, BRMS expected logical files are missing    
from QUSRBRM after an upgrade to a new release.                
2. In 7.2 and later, cloud full system recovery incorrectly sets
user *PUBLIC with *EXCLUDE authority for the directories in the
BRMS shipped QCLDIPL *LNK list.                                
3. In 7.2 and later, cloud and automatic virtual backups to    
optical that append, may fail with messages MSGOPT2500 and      
MSGOPT1321 when the backup spans multiple volumes.              
4. In 7.2 and later, RSTLIBBRM may restore the wrong library if
more than 9,999,999 records exist in the history file.          
5. In 7.2 and later, the sync job will not process any more    
entries until the Q1ABRMNET subsystem is restarted.            
6. In 7.2 and later, BRMS has been enhanced to provide SQL      
services to view, order, and subset BRMS media.                
7. In 7.2 and later, when restoring from a parallel backup, BRMS
incorrectly attempts to restore the *CUM before the *FULL      
8. In 7.2 and later, BRMS created outfiles with the prefix      
q1asav in directory '/tmp/brms' are not removed.                
9. In 7.2 and later, BRMS move policy has been enhanced to      
support the movement of full volumes to a new location.        
10. In 7.2 and later, STRMNTBRM with parameter PRTRCYRPT(*ALL)  
or PRTRCYRPT(*SAVEXCP) was enhanced to log message MSGBRM1571 in
the BRMS log with severity 0 if zero objects were not saved.    
11. In 7.2 and later, WRKOBJBRM has been enhanced with a START()
parameter to specify which saved objects entries to display    

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).                                                  
  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)
