BRMS for IBM i, including Cloud Storage Solutions for i (AS28G)

BRMS for IBM i, including Cloud Storage Solutions for i (AS28G)

Overview

Duration: 5 days

This course covers the features and functions supported by Backup Recovery and Media Services (BRMS). BRMS is an integrated and comprehensive tool for managing backup, recovery, archive, and retrieval operations for a single Power system with IBM i or multiple systems with IBM i at a site or across a BRMS Network. The lectures describe how to perform the supported functions when using a 5250 emulation session, when using System i Navigator, and when using IBM Navigator for i. Students will then have the opportunity to practice in lab exercises what they have learned in lecture.

Objectives

  • Describe the major features and functions of BRMS   
  • List the steps to install BRMS on a single system or in a BRMS Network environment   
  • Implement a previously defined backup and recovery strategy using BRMS   
  • Implement a previously defined archival and retrieval plan, including dynamic retrieval, using BRMS   
  • Explain how to utilize a tape drive, tape library system, virtual tape, and optical drive with BRMS   
  • Implement and use BRMS using the green screen, System i Navigator, and IBM Navigator for i.
