Well it appears we have the license for the product. I'm sure that we're
paying for it regardless. Would this feature be able to work across LPARs
or just guested LPARs. (still seems that message is incorrect on the
licensing bit or am I missing something?). We have a Notes LPAR on that
system and if I can set BRMS up to work for saves on both LPARs that would
be sweet. I never used BRMS until I got to this shop and am having to
basically do OJT. The previous "sys admin" (use that term*very* loosely
he didn't even know how to apply PTFs fer crying out loud...) never even
had the software in use.

Subject: Re: question on licensing messages.
Are you actually using the network feature, (one BRMS database with
multiple machines) or just the base of BRMS?
Most often times I see folks load all three parts of BRMS when they only
intend to use the base feature.
If you are not using the network feature (an excellent feature that is
dirt cheap) with multiple instances of IBM i, then I would remove it
from the system. I suspect you are not using it since the scratch tape
pool would not be anywhere near accurate for each of your machines, and
you would be having other issues.
