-------------------------------------------------
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 web
page:
www.ibm.com/developerworks/ibmi/brms
Additionally also review the media web page:
www.ibm.com/developerworks/ibmi/media

Fixes in this PTF:

secured volumes as unsecured volumes and unsecured volumes as
secured volumes.
10. In 7.2 and later, control group special values *ALLTEST,
*ALLPROD, and *ASPnn have been enhanced to run a single command
for full saves.
11. In 7.2 and later, cloud backups that span multiple volumes
while saving QUSRBRM may fail.

14. In 7.3 and later, the Recovery report ( QP1ARCY) report  has
been enhanced to include instructions to change the QSYSOPR
message queue after the sign on in the 'Update System Name in
BRMS Media Information' step.
15. In 7.1 and later, the ANZLIBBRM report (QP1ALA) now has a
better estimate in the summary section for *LINK data.
16. In 7.1 and later, archiving spooled files using STRARCBRM
may post message a MSGCPF0804.

multiple libraries by SAVLIBBRM or backup control groups not
show in WRKSPLFBRM.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE66899' :
-------------------------------
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:
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
users.
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
them.
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
client.
==== Pre-V6R1:
1) Close the System i Navigator application.
2) On the client/PC, uninstall the BRMS plug-in using the
Client

Access Express "Selective Setup" utility:  from the
Windows
"Start", select
"Programs->IBM iSeries Access for Windows->Selective
Setup".

Follow the instructions on the dialogs to uninstall the
BRMS

plug-in.  Notes:
a) On the second dialog, select the radio button "Ignore.
I'm
only going to UN-install components".
b) On the next screen, "Component Selection", open the
System i Navigator folder; a list of all installed
System i Navigator components and plug-ins is displayed.
c) Deselect the BRMS plug-in to uninstall it (if you do
not
see the BRMS plug-in, it was not properly installed);
reboot the PC if requested.
3) Start System i Navigator.
4) Use the System i Navigator "Install Options->Install
Plug-in"
action. This action is available from the main iSeries
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.

=== V6R1 and newer:
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.
