You know IBM’s Backup, Recovery and Media Services (BRMS) for i can help you track your media volumes, provide history about your backups, automate your backups, and guide you through a restore. But did you know that there’s a different way to set up BRMS if you’re using tape backups versus virtual tape libraries (VTLs)?
BRMS is available as a licensed program product (LPP) on IBM i, but you need to know how to set it up correctly. Otherwise you risk not having your irreplaceable IBM i data backed up properly.
In this 1-hour webinar, IBM’s Mervyn Venter joins IBM Power Champion Tom Huntington for some hands-on training that steps you through the setup process for BRMS. You’ll learn how to:
• Define rules using BRMS commands
• Create BRMS policies for backups
• Define volumes to BRMS
• Run backups
• Restore from your backups
In case of emergency, IBM i backups are critical for data recovery. If you’re new to IBM i or have just never really understood BRMS, this webinar is your chance to get free product training with practical information that you can apply immediately.
We look forward to having you join us on November 7!
