Session 1 will run through the installation, configuration, implementation and some of the landmines in most BRMS installations. You can install and be up and running with a simple back up plan (most likely what you do now) in less than a day. We will start with V7R3 install and configure BRMS so it’s ready for production. Then we will discuss some of the enhancements to BRMS made in the last year via PTFs. Want to use that new virtual tape support in IBM i? BRMS makes it easy! Learn why you should use BRMS and how to get it going.  By the end of this session the attendee will:

  1. Know how to install and maintain BRMS in a production environment
  2. Know what advanced options are available and when to use them
  3. Understand the differences between versions and how to exploit them

Session 2 will discuss some of the more advanced topics in using BRMS for backup and recovery. Featured topics will be tape management, Library management, back up lists, Control group controls and BRMS Policies and how they affect the overall operation of BRMS. Discussion on how back up lists work with Domino and WebSphere backup and recovery will be included. Recovering from a BRMS back up can be extremely easy but can also present some opportunities for trouble. This session will discuss some of the landmines in a BRMS recovery and how to avoid them. Learning objectives are:

  1. Understand the science and art of tape management in BRMS
  2. Utilize back up lists including how BRMS backs up Domino and WAS
  3. Learn how to make a BRMS recovery simple and as easy as possible
