APAR Error Description / Circumvention

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE12215 :
-----------------------------------------------
   Problems Fixed:

   BRMS Server Related
   a) DUPMEDBRM performance on specifying volumes.
   b) Using full media policy on a domino incremental backup.
   c) STRRCYBRM performance for reports with lots of lotus server
   backups.
   d)  Encounter messages msgCPFA09C, msgCPF3828, msgBRM14A1 on
   BRMS save of QLTSEXCL link list.
   d) IFS backups and MSGCPFB8C9 handled better, for domino do not
   stop server online backup.
   e) Online Domino Incremental Backups did not pick up notes
   databases that needed to be saved full.  In addition to the
   transactional logs, there will be databases that might
   get backed up full.  Possible reasons for individual fulls:
   1. If a new database has been added to the server since the
    last *FULL save of the Domino server.
   2. If a DBIID of a database has changed since the last FULL
    save of the database.
   3. If a non-logged Domino database has had a change made to it
    since the last FULL save of the database was done.

   BRMS GUI plug-in related:
   a) Backup Policy Properties errors associated with the "Move Up"
   and "Move Down" buttons and various panels.  The buttons are not
   correctly being enabled or disabled.
   b) On the Backup Policies Properties->During->Activity panel,
   disable the "Full" "Changes only", and "Customize" radiobuttons
   if the server indicates the Control Group list cannot be
   updated.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE12215 :
-----------------------------
   Load and apply PTF.

   If a BRMS plug-in update is needed, do the following after the
   the BRMS PTF is installed on the iSeries:
   1) Close the iSeries Navigator main window.
   2) On the client/PC, uninstall the BRMS plug-in using the Client
      Access Express "Selective Setup" utility:  from the Windows
      "Start", select
      "Programs->IBM iSeries Access for Windows->Selective Setup".
      Follow the instructions on the dialogs to uninstall the BRMS
      plug-in.  Notes:
      a) On the second dialog, select the radio button "Ignore. I'm
         only going to UN-install components".
      b) On the next screen, "Component Selection", open the
         iSeries Navigator folder; a list of all installed
         iSeries Navigator components and plug-ins is displayed.
      c) Deselect the BRMS plug-in to uninstall it (if you do not
         see the BRMS plug-in, it was not properly installed);
         reboot the PC if requested.
   3) On the client/PC, start the iSeries Navigator.
   4) Use the iSeries Navigator "Install Options->Install Plug-in"
      action. This action is available from the main iSeries
      Navigator "File" menu and the "My Connections" folder
      context/pop-up menu.  When prompted for the iSeries system
      to install from, select the iSeries that has the new BRMS
      PTF installed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE12215 :
--------------------------------
   None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE10074 :
-----------------------------------------------
   BRMS tape initialization does not allocate device. When save or
   restore operation is done via BRMS using a user defined media
   library allocation/deallocation of required devices takes
   place automatically.  When re-initializing media or adding media
   using BRMS (INZMEDBRM / WRKMEDBRM option 10)
   the allocation/deallocation of the devices does not occur. When
   they use manually allocates the drives before running the
   INZMEDBRM or ADDMEDBRM, no problems are encountered.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE11522 :
-----------------------------------------------
   Customer is trying to do a RSTDLOBRM and it is failing with a
   MSGMCH1202.  The joblog then indicates that the DLO was restored
   when in fact it was not.

   None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE11681 :
-----------------------------------------------
   Customer is attempting to do a parallel save of *ALLUSR using
   the SAVLIBBRM command. When BRMS tries to do the 'special' save
   of QUSRBRM, it fails with:
   MSGCPD0071 F/QCAFLD T/Q1AXCMD - Parameter DEV required.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE11681 :

   Load and Apply the ptf when available.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE11681 :
--------------------------------
   Use a control group to save *allusr parallel.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE11833 :
-----------------------------------------------
   Customer is using BRMS and has a control group as follows:
   10 *EXIT *DFTACT
      20 *EXIT *DFTACT
      30 *EXIT *DFTACT
      40 *SAVSYS FFFFFFF
      50 *IBM FFFFFFF *ERR *NO
      60 *ALLUSR *SYSBAS FFFFFFF *ERR *NO
      70 *ALLDLO FIIIIII *NO *NO
      80  *LINK             *ALLAVL     FFFFFFF   *YES    *NO
   SYSRES=      SYSIN=      SYSOUT=      CPU=             RE-IPL=
   BRMS is always doing a full save on the *ALLDLO.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE11833 :
--------------------------------
   None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE11875 :
-----------------------------------------------
   Customer uses BRMS to do their saves and run full and
   incremental or cumulative saves and then duplicate the volumes.
   If they expire the duplicated volumes of the full saves and not
   the orginal ones, BRMS will incorrectly do a full save the next
   time a save is run.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE11875 :
--------------------------------
   None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE11993 :
-----------------------------------------------
   Customer is using BRMS to archive physical and logical files as
   well as other types of files in libraries. When they run the
   archive report, it lists all the files but when they run the
   actual archive, not all files are archived.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE11993 :
--------------------------------
   None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE11909 :
-----------------------------------------------
   User profiles are set up with USROPT(*CLKWD). When they do a
   DUPMEDBRM, F4, F11 and then F10, it seems to loop or hang
   DUPMEDBRM + F4 + F10 works fine when the USROPT(*CLKWD) is
   defined in the user profile for the user running the command.
    It
   also works when a user without *CLKWD hits F11 to switch to
   keyword mode just after pressing F4 and before the F10
   (addtional commands) is pressed.  All other users are seeing a
   very bad performance following the sequence command DUPMEDBRM +
   F4 + F10. It can take hours to complete.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE11909 :
--------------------------------
   Make sure there is always a *TAP, *USRMLB, *TAPMLB type device
   at the bottom of the list of devs.  Make a dummy *USRMLB if
   there is none.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE12545 :
-----------------------------------------------
   If customer has a scheduled entry that submits a STRBKUBRM to
   *CONSOLE, if the BRMS Console Monitor is not started, a
   MSGBRM1955 is posted to the joblog but nothing is sent to the
   BRMS log.
   If the STRBKUBRM *CONSOLE is done from a command line,
   MSGBRM1950 is in the joblog but nothing in the BRMS log

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE12545 :
-----------------------------
   STRBKUBRM command has been updated to send diagnostic message
   BRM1955 followed by exception BRM1820 if SBMJOB(*CONSOLE) is
   used and the BRMS console monitor is not started. These messages
   are recorded in the BRMS log, the job log, and the BRM1820 is
   also
   sent to the Message queue for notification as set in the BRMS
   System Policy.
