It's been a while but if I remember correctly, the SAVSAVFBRM command only saves save files that BRMS creates.

I have difficulty understanding the commands.

I am saving libraries to savf outside of BRMS.

I then want to use SAVSAVFBRM to copy the savf to tape. The command does not make sense. How does it know what savf's to copy?


This does not make sense to me. How does it know what SAVF's to copy to tape?

The control group contains a list of libraries from the existing backup.

BTW: I am saving to savf first so that I can FTP the savf's to a NAS.

TIA, Darryl Freinkel.
