Prompt if WRKMLMBRM Option 6 Resets the Category of Media - Q1ACTGPMPT

In releases IBM i 6.1 and later, option 6 on the Work with Media Library Media (WRKMLMBRM) command can be used to change the category of a media volume. If the volume that you select is a BRMS volume, option 6 will reset the category to be consistent with the media class of the volume without prompting for user input.


To force prompting on each of the volumes when option 6 is specified, create data area QUSRBRM/Q1ACTGPMPT with the following command. This will change the prompting behavior for option 6 in all jobs on the system.

CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QUSRBRM/Q1ACTGPMPT) TYPE(*DEC) LEN(1)

To remove prompting when option 6 is specified, delete data area QUSRBRM/Q1ACTGPMPT with the following command:

DLTDTAARA DTAARA(QUSRBRM/Q1ACTGPMPT)
