RE: BRMS Backup Strategy and Implementation



fixed

Rob,

To keep 2 LPARs balanced with the same number of owned scratch volumes, would the below be the correct STRBALBRM strategy.

Currently Pencor05 owns 2 scratch ULTRIUM5 volumes, Pencor06 owns 4 scratch ULTRIUM5 volumes.

First, only once I would run
QSYS/STRBALBRM ACTION(*SET) MEDCLS(ULTRIUM5) LOC(TAPMLB01) SYSNAME(PENCOR05 PENCOR06) MEDREQ(6)

Then daily, after loading scratch volumes into TAPMLB01, I would run
QSYS/STRBALBRM ACTION(*BALANCE) MEDCLS(ULTRIUM5) LOC(TAPMLB01) SYSNAME(PENCOR05 PENCOR06)

Paul

And you only run STRBALBRM on one system. Or how you like to run it.

For example, if we have one tape library used in our Garrett IN office, and that feeds multiple lpars, we may run the STRBALBRM on one of the lpars there. And run a different STRBALBRM, once, on one of other lpars in our Kendallville IN office for all of the lpars there.
