Introduction to BRMS for IBM i

How to get started using Backup, Recovery and Media Services for i


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.
