Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

When recovering a system to a different system using BRMS, if the options are not selected to restore the system information, no recovery information will be shown when doing a STRRCYBRM ACTION(*RESTORE)

Resolving the problem

When recovering a system to a different system using BRMS, if the options are not selected to restore the system information, no recovery information will be shown when doing a STRRCYBRM ACTION(*RESTORE) . In the BRMS recovery report, QP1ARCY, the following step contains the process on how to get the recovery information to show up on the system:

__ STEP 007 : Update System Name in BRMS Media Information                                            
   Start date/time __________________  Stop date/time __________________  Duration _________________  
       BRMS uses the network identifier and default local location name from                          
       the system network attributes to assign a system owner to saved items                          
       and the media containing those saved items.                                                    
       The network attributes for the saved system are:                                                
           Local network ID . . . . . . . . . . .: XXXXXX                                            
           Default local location . . . . . . . .: YYYYYY                                            
       Display the network attributes of the recovery system.                                          
       To do so, type the following command and press "Enter".                                        
           DSPNETA                                                                                     
      Record the network attributes of the recovery system:                
          Local network ID . . . . . . . . . . .: ____________________    
          Default local location . . . . . . . .: ____________________    
      If the local network identifier or default local location for the    
      saved system are different from the recovery system and the recovery
      system is correct, you must change the system owner of the saved                
      items and media in the BRMS history to match the network attributes.            
      To do so, type the following command and press "Enter".                          
          INZBRM OPTION(*CHGSYSNAM) PRVSYSNAM(XXXXXX.YYYYYY ) NEWSYSNAM(*LCL)       
      -----  Attention  ---------------------------------------------------            
      Be sure to specify a fully qualified name for the saved system                  
      using "local-network-id.default-local-location" format.                          
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------            
      If the local network identifier or default local location for the                
      saved system are different from the recovery system and the saved                
      system is correct, you must change the network attributes of the                
      recovery system to match the system owner of the saved items and                
      media in the BRMS history.                                                      
      To do so, type the following command and press "Enter".    
          CHGNETA LCLNETID(XXXXXX ) SYSNAME(YYYYYY)    

However, the command listed at the end is incorrect. The correct command that needs to run is as follows:

CHGNETA LCLNETID(XXXXXX ) LCLLOCNAME(YYYYYY )

and then the user needs to sign off and on again, and run STRRCYBRM ACTION(*RESTORE)
