DUPMEDBRM with Generic File Group Names

In V6R1 and later, support has been added to specify a generic name for the File group (FILEGRP) parameter on the Duplicate Media using BRM (DUPMEDBRM) command.

Specify the generic name of the file group whose volume you want to be duplicated. A generic name is a character string that contains one or more characters followed by an asterisk (*). If an * is not specified with the name, the name is assumed to be a complete file group name.
