APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
1. In V7R1, MSGMCH3601 or MSGMCH1202 is sent when using the BRMS
GUI Save History Include to select Saved Items types of
Directories or files from a system at a release prior to V7R1.
2. In V5R4 and above, when saving data to a volume that was
previously used in a parallel save or multi volume set, the
parallel save or spanning volume save flag ('+' sign) should be
removed.
3. In V5R4 and above, MSGCPF2419 might be sent on using the BRMS
client to display the BRMS log.
4. In V6R1 and above, after adding a control group, BRMS should
display it in the table without clicking Refresh. In V7R1 and
above, after scheduling a task, BRMS will show it in the Tasks
panel without clicking Refresh.
5. In V6R1 and above, the BRMS plugin will only allow Omit
object type "Journal Receivers" when the backup items are All
unsaved detached journal receivers (*ALLDTCRCV) or  All unsaved
changed journal receivers  (*ALLCHGRCV). BRMS will now support
using the omits also.
6. In V6R1 and above, when '*' is specified for ASP device in
control group, or on SAVLIBBRM, QUSRBRM is not saved.
7. In V5R4 and above, when removing a volume via WRKMEDBRM, a
MSGRNQ1221 may occur if there are a large number of saved items
to be removed.
8. In V6R1 and above, when viewing Advanced Job Scheduled ( AJS
) scheduled tasks in Scheduled Tasks under Management Central,
the refresh rate may be slow
9. In V6R1 and above, when recovering an object, if the history
for this object is not on local system, and the owner of the
volume is local system, MSGBRM1177 may be in the joblog.
10. In V5R4 and above, when expiring or removing a volume a
large number of saved items, the expiration or removal may take
a long time and MSGMCH6903 is posted. The volume may not be
removed
11. In V6R1 and above, a MSGCPF41B0 (incorrect image catalog
name) can occur using virtual tapes.
12. In V5R4 and above, when maintenance runs, a recursive loop
may occur when trying to update volume ownership between
systems.
13. In V6R1 and above, when using a control group that has mixed
parallel and serial saves, *LOAD and also using Auto
Duplication, the media definition for parallel doesn't get
created correctly and causes unexpected results with media
usage.
14. In V6R1 and above, when running a Domino control group
created without the pre-exit and post-exit, end of tape
processing doesn't occur and other unexpected results.  A Domino
control group requires the pre and post exits, and will now
produce an error when the exits are missing and also complete
unsuccessfully.
15. In V5R4 and above, when running INZBRM *CHGSYSNAM, if
parameter NEWSYSNAM is not *LCL, the command may fail and
MSGBRM412B may be in the joblog
16. In V5R4 and above, when API Q1ARTVMED is called, the product
libraries in library list may be incorrect.
17. In V5R4, when running RSTOBJBRM to restore an object, of
which the save item is removed, MSGMCH1202 may be in the joblog.
18. In V5R4 and above, when a full save of a library is saved to
a save file, A SAVSAVFBRM is run and the save file expired, the
following cumulative or incremental save of this library may
result in full save.
19. In V5R4 and above, on duplicating media and switching from
compaction either on or off, on the duplication, WRKMEDIBRM
option 5 will now show the right value for duplicated media.
20. In V5R4 and above, when duplicating media to a volume that
has bad file, the original file maybe is overwritten during the
duplication.
21. In V5R4 and above, when doing option *MERGE in INZBRM,
journal receiver information (file QA1AOR) is not merged into
the destination library.
22. In V6R1 and above, if *MEDPCY is set for the encryption
field on a control group entry for a spoolfile list backup item.
The saved item history will be set to encryption *YES regardless
if the media policy is not set for encryption.
23. In V5R4 and above, when doing *MERGE in INZBRM, the details
of IFS objects may not be merged.
24. In V5R4 and above, when library on i-asp is deleted, it
should not exist in the recovery report.
25. In V6R1 and above, when running a BRMS control group that
has a serial library ahead of a parallel spoolfile list,
appending might happen on a parallel mediafile when it should
have been a scratch tape.
26. In V5R4 and above, when running STRBKUBRM with the APPEND
override to the control group value for Domino and IFS saves
that use the control group attributes...this is being ignored.
27. In V5R4 and above, when running from the BRMS client a
control group, a MSGBRM4023 might be sent incorrectly for a user
not having *JOBCTL authority, when they do.
28. In V5R4 and above, in Domino backup or other backups using
SAVBRM, if maintenance is run with media contents set to *REUSE
and the save spans, there may be records which are not for this
save but get updated.
29. In V5R4 and above, if saving to a savefile and a RMVMEDIBRM
or STRMNTBRM is run, the savefile might be deleted.
30. In V5R4 and above, when doing a WRKSPLFBRM, OUTPUT(*), the
duplicated save may be displayed even the original save is on
the system. If a data area QTEMP/Q1ASPLFDUP is created, then all
original items and duplication's are displayed.
31. In 6.1 and greater, when using media libraries,
intermittently media sets are not updated correctly causing
unpredictable results.  Also, when using a media library with 32
drive resources, an out of range error occurs.
32. In V5R4 or greater, when running a control group where a
group of libraries are being saved incrementally and *NOCMTBDY
is being used for Save While Active, the group should be
omitting any libraries that start with "Q" or "#" and they are
not.
33. In 6.1 and greater, customers having difficulty determining
why objects are not archiving.  Additional flight recording was
added to assist in determining why objects were not candidates
for archive.
34. In V5R4 or greater, media that is appended to with a QUSRBRM
save, are having the "File Group" name and id changed.  This
shouldn't change when being appended to.
35. In V5R4 and above, when there are error messages in SAVSYS,
SACSECDTA and SAVCFG may be done on scratched volumes.
36. In V5R4 and above, when running WRKMLMBRM with a selection
that tries to display more than 9999 volumes a MSGRNX1255 is
sent and nothing is displayed.  This enhancement will stop at
9999 entries and send a MSGBRM3C90, but the display is still
valid to work with.
37. In V5R4 and above, when doing parallel save of libraries and
the parallel settings in control group entries are *DEFAULT,
QUSRBRM may be bundled together with other libraries and not
listed in the saved history (WRKMEDIBRM)
38. In V5R4 and above, MSGCPF5027 may be posted when BRMS tries
to synchronize the local duplication information to other
systems in BRMS network.
39. In V5R4 and above, when doing a remote duplication,
duplicate media information might not be sent back to the
original system.
