Hmm. Something is not right. We do lots of these a year and I can't recall
seeing that series of messages before.

I'm guessing that in the early recovery, all the IBM libraries were not
restored from the 12/14 save. I'll guess that's a bug in the BRMS recovery
since QSYS2 is considered a user library.

I would:
1) recover QSYS2 from the 12/14 tape (manually or with BRMS)
2) do a restore object to QSYS2 from the 12/31 tape (similar instructions
for the QUSRBRM library in the recovery report)
3) restart the recovery.

Subject: BRMS QSYS2 recovery errors

I'm doing a BRMS recovery.
V7R3, latest cume and groups.

BRMS system save was 12/14/19.
BRMS full ME save 12/31/19.
BRMS daily incremental backup.

From BRMS recovery report.

Receiving many CPF1401 for library QSYS2, reason code 02 - The file does not
exist. The library does exist.

File SYSTYPES in library QSYS2 not found or inline data file missing.
File SYSROUTINE in library QSYS2 not found or inline data file missing.
File QASQVRSS in library QSYS2 not found or inline data file missing.
File SYSVARS in library QSYS2 not found or inline data file missing.
File SYSVARDEP in library QSYS2 not found or inline data file missing.

Also receiving CPF9812
File SYSTXTINDX in library QSYS2 not found.

And CPI321E
File SYSLIMITS in library QSYS2 deferred.

I am not comfortable continuing with these errors.

I remember an issue from years ago that BRMS recovery had some issues when
incremental saves were involved.
I'm not sure if the above errors are related to the incrementals or not.

If I change the end date/time on STRRCYBRM to the date of the system save,
12/14/19, to exclude the incrementals, these errors will probably all go

Any thoughts from the group.

Thank You
