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 wiki:
ibm.biz/ibmi-brms

Fixes in this PTF:
1. In 7.3 and later, users are incorrectly allowed to expire
volumes assigned to a media class that denies functional usage.
2. In 7.3 and later, multiple calls to the Q1ARTVMED API may
fail with MSGC2M3014  and MSGMCH3601.
3. In 7.3 and later, BRMS has been enhanced with a new append
media volume selection which verifies mounted volumes are
reserved to the job before using them for backups.  The purpose
of this new volume selection algorithm is to prevent concurrent
backup jobs from using the same volume and failing with
MSGBRM148A.
4. In 7.3 and later, BRMS SQL service enhancements have been
added for the BRMS enterprise function. These new services give
users the ability to set up nodes in a BRMS enterprise network,
schedule and manage BRMS reports from a central system. See the
BRMS wiki for more information at
https://ibm.biz/brms-enhancements.
5. In 7.3 and later, BRMS enterprise reporting has been enhanced
to support the PRTMOVBRM command for when using the new BRMS SQL
services procedures. See the BRMS wiki for more information at
https://ibm.biz/brms-enhancements.
6. In 7.3 and later, the parameter Option OPTION(*SECUREDDM)
with Action ACTION(*SET) on the Initialize BRMS (INZBRM) command
has been disabled and will fail with MSGBRM412B. BRMS encourages
using the alternate method of implementing the QDDMDRDASERVER
special value in the SERVER parameter of the Add Server
Authentication Entry (ADDSVRAUTE) command. See the BRMS wiki for
more information at https://ibm.biz/brms-enhancements.
7. In 7.3 and later, the Work with Media Policies (WRKPCYBRM
*MED) command interface to create or change a media policy with
a Media class special value of *ADSM has been disabled and will
fail with MSGBRM1174. The reason for this change is that IBM
Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) reached End of Support (EOS) in
April of 2015.
8. In 7.3 and later, turnkey cloud control groups that run
interactively may incorrectly leave files locked in library
QUSRBRM.
