IBM Partnership


Backup, Recovery, and Media Services for IBM i (BRMS)

Version: PTF 7.5 SI80273, 7.4 SI80272, 7.3 SI80271

September 15, 2022

Enhancements

In version 7.3 and later:

  • BRMS has been enhanced with a new append media volume selection which verifies mounted volumes are reserved to the job before using them for backups. The purpose of this new volume selection algorithm is to prevent concurrent backup jobs from using the same volume and failing with MSGBRM148A.

  • SQL service enhancements have been added for the BRMS enterprise function. These new services give users the ability to set up nodes in a BRMS enterprise network, schedule and manage BRMS reports from a central system. See the BRMS wiki for more information.

  • BRMS enterprise reporting has been enhanced to support the PRTMOVBRM command for when using the new BRMS SQL services procedures. See the BRMS wiki for more information.

Fixes

In version 7.5:

  • The issue of INZBRM OPTION(*RESET) incorrectly failing when the user has the correct authorization to run the command has been fixed.

In version 7.3 and later:

  • Issue where users incorrectly are allowed to expire volumes assigned to a media class that denies functional usage was fixed.

  • Fixed problem in which multiple calls to the Q1ARTVMED API failed with MSGC2M3014 and MSGMCH3601.

  • The situation where turnkey cloud control groups that run interactively incorrectly may leave files locked in library QUSRBRM.

  • The parameter Option OPTION(*SECUREDDM) with Action ACTION(*SET) on the Initialize BRMS (INZBRM) command has been disabled and will fail with MSGBRM412B. BRMS encourages using the alternate method of implementing the QDDMDRDASERVER special value in the SERVER parameter of the Add Server Authentication Entry (ADDSVRAUTE) command.

  • The Work with Media Policies (WRKPCYBRM *MED) command interface to create or change a media policy with a Media class special value of *ADSM has been disabled and will fail with MSGBRM1174. The reason for this change is that IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) reached End of Support (EOS) in April of 2015.

  • *LOCALSYS *SEQUEL SQL conversion using *PARTOUT or *ONLYDFT did not build the translated SQL statement correctly when the join fields did not match the order of the files on the FROM clause.
  • Removes unnecessary messages from job log - CPF9801 object SEQUEL in library *LIBL type *PRDDFN not found
  • The following fixes have been made to SQJCRO:
    • Running a CRO report with SQJCRO that has a formula written using the last column in the Select clause will fail. This has been fixed.
    • SQJCRO fails if more than one email recipient is specified.
    • A fix was made when running a CRO report with SQJCRO would not display DATE type fields. They were displaying blank.
    • Emailing a CRO with SQJCRO would fail if the text or subject began with a *.
    • Client Report output using barcodes will not show the correct font when the font exists in the /QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk80/64bit/jre/lib/fonts or /QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk80/32bit/jre/lib/fonts folder.
    • Some printers where not handling output from SQJCRO because of spaces at the end of the spooled file. These spaces have been replaced with a null character.
    • Generic SQJ1216 error when running a CRO from the Sequel Java Server when column names are longer than 10 characters.
    • A fix was made to display more complex charts ie: stacked bar charts when CRO is processed with the SQJCRO command.

September 13, 2022

Enhancements
  • The Sequel Web Server has been upgraded to Tomcat 9.0.65 and Apache 2.4.54.
Fixes
  • From SWI, view with DBLIST with a File is not sorting records in drop down as expected when a Description field is used.
  • DBLIST values not sorted correctly when specifying a View and a description field.
  • A fix was made for a View with a QSTRING variable with a defined default value. Qstring default values are saved with double quotes, even if you enter it with single quotes. When run in SWI, the setvar value shows as ' "IL" '. That appears to cause it to error out. When choosing a value from the variables Value list which are entered with single quotes, the setvar shows as ' ' 'IL' ' ' and the process works
  • Scripts erroneously quote *ALL in the SETVAR parameter, i.e. SETVAR((&VAR '''*ALL''')), when run from SWI. It appears 0 are returned records but the error CPD0078 'Value ' ' for parameter DTAARA not a valid name' appears in log.
  • Double byte characters are displayed incorrectly from browser when the field used field which contains both US English and Chinese characters.

  • A fix has been made for Dashboards run from SWI Explorer and SWS Host which can display charts incorrectly where chart2 will display the same as chart1.
  • SWI attempted to use the TITLE parameter rather than the SUBJECT parameter when creating the SQJCRO command when attempting to e-mail the output.

Viewpoint 11

Version: 11.22.244

September 13, 2022

Fixes
  • The Java version shipped with Viewpoint has been updated from Java 1.7 to Java 1.8
  • Changing Fonts in View Designer gave error 339 Component 'sysinfo.Ocx' and did not show window.
  • In design of a RDB/*Server view, if a file name is incorrect VP will not allow you to go to the Variables tab. It has been fixed now and you still get a message that the file could not be found but it allows you to go to the Variable tab.
  • Client Table over *LOCALSYS/*SEQUEL View with WDATA (hidden) fields fails to display gives error Cant open ADO recordset; column 'OHSTRE_01' is not found.
  • A fix has been made to properly allow you to turn on and off the following options in a Host Report Design - View/Show Grid, View/Show Available Fields, and View/Show Field Names.
  • An issue with the Viewpoint Listener Service was introduced in 11.21.361 that prevented the service from starting.
  • In the 64-bit Excel Add-in, a defined expression variable value was not passed correctly, view returns no records.
  • Corrected a rare condition where the 32-bit ViewPoint Addin was installed instead of the 64-bit Addin.
  • Objects in a dashboard where there are some views/charts located to the right beyond main window cause the objects to open up out of position. Clicking on the visible objects would snap them back into place, but scrolling to the right most objects you had little control on moving the objects. This has been fixed.
  • A fix was made to correct an issue where a gauge would reflect the wrong value when the dashboard refreshed the data. The gauge was based on the total of a column, and the view data was hidden.
  • Dashboard with many Sequel objects set to refresh that is kept open for a long duration could case 'an error occurred while retrieving records' with an MCH0603 message on the host when no records were returned on a refresh.
  • In Repository mode a when inserting a chart in a dashboard was blank if the view is in a repository subfolder.
