Course Outline:

This course covers the features and functions supported by Backup Recovery and Media Services (BRMS). BRMS is an integrated and comprehensive tool for managing backup, recovery, archive, and retrieval operations for a single Power system with IBM i or multiple systems with IBM i at a site or across a BRMS Network. The course describes how to perform the supported functions when using a 5250 emulation session, when using System i Navigator, and when using IBM Navigator for i. Students will then have the opportunity to practice in lab exercises what they have learned in the course.

Pre-requisites:

You should have a working understanding of the capabilities and operations in the area of save and restore for IBM i. Ideally you have attended Sierra Training’s Operations (ISOPS) course or have equivalent education and experience.
