APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
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:
1. In 7.1 and later, specifying EXPDATE(*FROMVOL) sets incorrect
expiration on the output volumes on the DUPMEDBRM command when
using SBMOPT(*YES) to run in batch.
2. In 7.1 and later, PRTRPTBRM TYPE(*BKUSTAT) is not listing all
the libraries that have been backed up.
3. In 7.1 and later, BRMS has being enhanced to support remote
cloud downloads.  This allows the capability of restoring from
media at a cloud location for media that was created by a backup
on a different system.
4. In 7.2 and later, BRMS backups using special value *ALLTEST
may incorrectly include production libraries.
5. In 7.2 and later, BRMS backups using special value *ASPnn may
not backup all user libraries in the ASP.
6. In 7.1 and later, BRMS turn key control groups are being
enhanced to build the correct default control groups for IBM
Cloud Storage Solutions for i V1.2.0.
7. In 7.1 and later, SAVLIBBRM of library QUSRBRM may fail with
MSGBRM1817.
8. In 7.1 and later, SAVOBJBRM may send some MSGCPF37xx messages
as diagnostic instead of escape.
9. In 7.1 and later, user created control groups with prefix
QCLDUIPL and QCLDUGRP are incorrectly using virtual tape instead
of virtual optical.
10. In 7.1 and later, paging up on WRKMLMBRM top page clears any
previously entered Opt selections.
11. In 7.1 and later, BRMS maintenance may fail with message
MSGMCH6903.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE68625' :
-------------------------------
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:

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.
