Working with saved IFS objects

In BRMS, there are several methods to view the save history for IFS objects, using commands such as WRKMEDBRM, WRKMEDIBRM, WRKLNKBRM, etc.

When an option is taken to work with objects from one of the commands and you are presented with a list containing the column heading "Directory", it is a list of the parent directories for objects that were included in the save. This list does not indicate whether the directory objects were included in the save.

When an option is taken to work with objects from one of the commands and you are presented with a list containing the column heading "Object", it is a list of the objects that were included in a save. This list does indicate that all of the objects were included in the save.

The following examples use this following directory structure:

If you take option 7 on an item from a screen with a "Directory" column, '/*' will be appended to the name during the restore. For example, specifying option 7 for '/dir1' will restore '/dir1/*'. The directory object '/dir1' will not be restored, only the contents of '/dir1' will be restored: '/dir1/file1', '/dir1/dir2a', '/dir1/dir2a/file2' and '/dir1/dir2b'.

If you take option 7 on an item from a screen with an "Object" column, the object itself will be included in the restore. For example, specifying option 7 for 'dir1' will restore the directory object '/dir1' along with the contents of '/dir1': '/dir1/file1', '/dir1/dir2a', '/dir1/dir2a/file2' and '/dir1/dir2b'.
