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 7.2 and later, using SAVSAVFBRM for several save file
backups up with different media policy retentions may set the
wrong volume expiration date.
2. In 7.2 and later, BRMS has enhanced the way it processes job
log messages to improve performance.
3. In 7.2 and later, cloud backups using an IASP for the cloud
transfer were not checking for enough space available for the
virtual media and MSGBRM1799 did not show the correct IASP name.
4. In 7.2 and later, BRMS has been enhanced to provide turnkey
virtual support when using media classes named QAVVRTTAP or
QAVVRTOPT.
5. In 7.2 and later, BRMS restore commands that exceed 1000
characters fail with MSGCPD0013.
6. In 7.2 and later, the BRMS GUI Restore Wizard "Browse" dialog
box does not show contents of IASPs.
7. In 7.2 and later, BRMS user media library device support is
resolving the incorrect Deallocate device command parameter for
the &DEVICE variable.
8. In 7.2 and later, BRMS has enhanced the STRRCYBRM command to
order *IBM and *ALLUSR libraries by ascending tape sequence
order.
9. In 7.4, the old world call to set the cloud transfer ASP does
not change the Cloud transfer ASP setting in the backup policy.
