APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
1. In V5R4 and above, when running EXTMEDIBRM and a BRMS backup
at the same time, MSGCPF415E may be posted.

2. In V5R4 and above, when marking or unmarking a saved item for
duplication, (options 18 and 19 in WRKMEDIBRM), the spanning
volumes are not marked or unmarked.

3. In V5R4 and above, WRKSPLFBRM will take a long time when a
lot of spool files have been saved.

4. In V5R4 and above, there may be a MSGMCH3601 when saving IFS
objects.

5. In V6R1 and above, when changing the expiration date on an
active volume using CHGMEDBRM, a MSGCPD0013 might be posted.

6. In V5R4 and above, when using WRKSPLFBRM to restore spool
files, the files to be restored may not be the ones selected by
the user and the restore may fail.

7. In V5R4 and above, when removing a system from the BRMS
network and selecting a 4 on all the systems on one system, will
cause the system to be removed from one other system in the BRMS
network. This is incorrect and should be removed manually on one
of the other systems in the BRMS network

8. In V6R1 and above, if appending using versioning and an
append candidate is not already loaded in the tape drive, BRMS
will use a scratch volume and not a valid append candidate.
SAVSAVFBRM might get a MSGBRM148A.

9. In V6R1 and above, the Q1ASYNTAP job queue can be overrun
with jobs.

10. In V6R1 and above, when specifying PERIOD((*AVAIL *CURRENT)
(*AVAIL *END)) on the PRTRPTBRM command, nothing is printed in
the report.

11. In V5R4 and above, you can now change the BRMS flight
recorder size via a call interface:
QUSRBRM/Q1AMAXFR
This data area is now supported via a call interface:
To change the flight recorder size (in megabytes) to 001-999
issue this command:
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('FRSIZE '  '*SET'    'XXX' )
- Where XXX is equal to 001 - 999   Note: 0s must be added to
the front of the numbers

To show the current flight recorder size issue this command:
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('FRSIZE ' '*DISPLAY' )

Note:
The flight recorder size  will be available in releases IBM i
7.1 and earlier using this interface. This function will be put
into the system policy in a future release.

12 In V5R4 and above, volumes might not be selected for backups
and messages MSGBRM148A and MSGBRM0004 might be seen.

13. In V6R1 and above, override support for the new ASYNCBRING
key on the QsrSave API to help improve IFS save performance is
now possible using one of the following commands:

To enable the new ASYNCBRING key:
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'ASYNCBRING' '*YES')


To disable the new ASYNCBRING key:
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'ASYNCBRING' '*NO ')

To remove the override, use the following command (default is
*NO):
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*REMOVE ' 'ASYNCBRING')

To show the current override being used, use the following
command:
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*DISPLAY' 'ASYNCBRING')

Note: In releases following IBM i 7.1, interfaces will be
provided on BRMS commands, but this override will be honored.

The following PTFs or their superseding PTFs are required:
BRMS:
7.1    SI44710
V6R1M0 SI44709

IBM i OS:
For release 6.1.0 (with 6.1.0 SLIC)
MF53846
SI44587
SI44589
SI44739

For release 6.1.0 (with 6.1.1 SLIC)
MF53847
SI44587
SI44589
SI44739

For release 7.1.0
MF53848
SI44588
SI44590
SI44688

Other IBM i PTFs to help IFS save performance:
- 6.1.0: MF52495
- 6.1.1: MF52284
- 7.1.0: MF52772

14. In V7R1 Systems Director Navigator plugin, the scheduled
tasks always display scheduled status. This has been changed for
tasks scheduled to run once. For these tasks, BRMS now displays
the status of the last attempted submission (complete, error or
cancelled).

15. In V5R4 and above, saving multiple spoolfile lists in the
same control group might use multiple volumes. MSGBRM0004 RC
14will be posted in the joblog

16. In V5R4 and above, when running a SAVOBJ command and using a
volume that is in the BRMS inventory, BRMS will error with
MSGBRM3D1D RC7.

17. In V5R4 and above, when saving BRMS save files via
SAVSAVFBRM, BRMS may error with a MSGBRM148A.

18. In V5R4 and above, when saving QUSRBRM on i5 OS internal
virtual tapes and the save spans, there is an assertion and the
history record may be incorrect.

19. In V5R4 and above, when saving a domino server containing
more than 100 domino files in one directory which have a long
path (longer than 256), a MSGMCH3601 may be posted.

20. In V5R4 and above, when running a SAVSYS via BRMS, and a
MSGCPF9999 is posted, BRMS is incorrectly sending a MSGBRM1082
indicating that the SAVSYS was a success.

21. In V5R4 and above, after a volume has being used in a serial
or parallel set, a '+' sign will be shown next to the volume in
the WRKMEDBRM screen. When the volume is reused after it has
been expired, the '+' sign is not removed.

22. When appending to a volume that has a expiration date less
then the current expiration of the save, the volume is not
updated.  This causes media to expire sooner then it should, and
items on that media are then also expired even though their
expiration is much further out.

23. In V5R4 and above, MSGCPF2419 might be sent on using the
BRMS client to display the BRMS log. Further enhancements will
be added in a future PTF.

24. In V5R4 and above, override support for the DTACPR parameter
is now supported for saves to save file within BRMS.
*HIGH/*MEDIUM/*LOW/*DEV/*NO/*YES are all valid values.

To enable the new save file DTACPR parameter to a *HIGH: CALL
PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'SAVFDTACPR' '*HIGH   ')


To enable the new save file DTACPR parameter to a *MEDIUM: CALL
PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'SAVFDTACPR' '*MEDIUM
')

To enable the new save file DTACPR parameter to a *LOW: CALL
PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'SAVFDTACPR' '*LOW    ')

To enable the new save file DTACPR parameter to a *YES: CALL
PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'SAVFDTACPR' '*YES    ')

To enable the new save file DTACPR parameter to a *NO: CALL
PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'SAVFDTACPR' '*NO     ')

To enable the new save file DTACPR parameter to a *DEV: CALL
PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*ADD' 'SAVFDTACPR' '*DEV    ')

To remove the override, use the following command:
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*REMOVE ' 'SAVFDTACPR')

To show the current override being used, use the following
command:
CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM('PARMOVR' '*DISPLAY' 'SAVFDTACPR')


25.  Enabled functional authority on media classes to prohibit
output operations on media the user does not have authority to.
