Remove the deleted library attention block from recovery reports

Recovery reports (QP1ARCY) are generated with the Start Recovery using BRM (STRRCYBRM) command.  If *DELETE is specified for the Omit libraries (OMITLIB) parameter on the STRRCYBRM command, libraries that have been deleted since they were saved will be excluded from the recovery.  These excluded libraries are added to the deleted libraries attention block in the recovery report. The deleted libraries attention block appears in the recovery report as follows:

----- Attention -----------------------------------
The following deleted libraries have been excluded from recovery by using *DELETE on the Libraries to omit (OMITLIB) parameter. These are libraries which have been saved and subsequently removed from the system.
DLTLIB0001 DLTLIB0002 DLTLIB0003 DLTLIB0004 DLTLIB0005
DLTLIB0006 DLTLIB0007 DLTLIB0008 DLTLIB0009 DLTLIB0010
DLTLIB0011 DLTLIB0012
No additional action is necessary if these libraries are not required for system recovery. Otherwise, change the Omit libraries (OMITLIB) parameter so these libraries are not excluded, or use the following command to recover these libraries after all other saved items have been restored.
STRRCYBRM OPTION(*LIB) ACTION(*RESTORE) LIB(library-name)
----------------------------------------------------


Recovery reports can become very large due to the deleted library attention block so the deleted library attention block can optionally be removed from the recovery report.


In releases IBM i 7.2 and later,  the Show deleted libraries (SHWDLTLIB) parameter on the STRRCYBRM command can be used to control whether the deleted libraries attention block should be included in the recovery report.


In releases IBM i 7.1 and earlier, data area QUSRBRM/Q1ANODLTAT can be used to remove the deleted libraries attention block from the recovery report.  The data area can be created with the following command:

CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QUSRBRM/Q1ANODLTAT) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(1)

NOTES:

  • In releases IBM i 6.1 and V5R4M0, the following PTFs or their superseding PTFs are required:

6.1 SI37276
V5R4M0 SI37269

  • If you wish to include the attention block in the report, simply delete data area QUSRBRM/Q1ANODLTAT.
  • Data area Q1ANODLTAT is not supported in releases IBM i 7.2 and later.
