Tips, techniques, and recommendations for moving media in your network
When systems are in a BRMS network, running movement needs to be carefully managed. The following are recommendations to help prevent issues with volume movement:
- When running movement as part of BRMS maintenance (
STRMNTBRM), it is recommended that only one system runs movement.
- If systems in the BRMS network are attached to different tape media libraries, run movement using
MOVMEDBRM SYSNAME(*LCL)on each system or set up the option to eject media on a tape media library that is not configured on the local systemEject Media on a Tape Media Library that is Not Configured on the Local System, but still only run movement on one system.
- If multiple systems are attached to different tape media libraries at , for example, 2 different locations, use
MOVMEDBRM LOC(xxxxxxx)on one system at each location.
