I selected SAVF for the media policy. It shows up with device = ULTRIUM. IS
this correct?

For your library save to savf, use SAVLIBBRM with a media policy of SAVF,
or one you create that contains SAVF.
Then do your SAVSAVFBRM

Will save to the savf first, then FTP the SAVF to a NAS server, then use
SAVSAVFBRM to copy it to tape.

Exactly!
If you do a WRKOBJBRM MYLIB/MYFILE *FILE and you used BRMS to save to
save files, then used SAVSAVFBRM to move it to tapes, it will tell you
the tapes holding that object.
However if you do the save to save file outside of BRMS then you're SOL.

It would be my recommendation to either use BRMS or NOT use BRMS.
Mixing and Matching means that BRMS doesn't have full tracking of
what's saved where r when. That doesn't make much difference for
purposes of saving, HOWEVER, the only reason we save things is so that
we can restore them if needed. If BRMS doesn't know where they are
saved, that's a problem.

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?

SAVSAVFBRM CTLGRP(DAILY) DEV(TAPMLB01) MEDPCY(DP_DAILY)

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.
