Re: BRMS suddenly requires second tape?



fixed

The QUSRBRM is done all the time at the end of any save: full, "IFS",
library, etc. It is the BRMS data so that if your system fries you'll
have exactly all the data on that tape to get your BRMS data up to the
minute so that you have a valid inventory of what object, from which save
(date/time), is on which tape and where that tape is physically located.
It really shouldn't be jumping to a second tape unless your first tape is
full.

Here's from our full system save on our development lpar:
You'll notice QUSRBRM being saved a few times, after the *ALLUSR, after
the *LINK.
This all fit on one LTO3 tape performed on one LTO4 drive.
