BRMS Backup Strategy and Implementation



fixed

. . . perm saves mixed with saves that expire

Also, when speaking of the virutes of BRMS, I don't think that anyone has mentioned one other saving grace of BRMS.

When you install the BRMS software onto the box, anytime you "save-to-tape" - - even when using a non-BRMS command like SAVOBJ and SAVLIB,
the BRMS database of tapeID's is checked, and if the tape is not yet expired or has a *PERM retention date, the IBM commands will not allow you to continue.
So operator errors are eliminated.

And how? The IBM commands that have anything to do with Save-to-Tape are modified during the installation of BRMS. That is how they accomplish that piece of magic.
