    Abstract

    IBM Backup Recovery and Media Services (BRMS) for the IBM eServer iSeries server is the strategic solution for managing backup, recovery, media, and storage in an iSeries-only environment. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server and client products are the IBM tools that correspond to backup, recovery, media, and storage management functions in a heterogeneous (multiplatform) environment. IBM offers a unique integrated solution by combining the proven performance of BRMS on the iSeries server with the multiplatform capabilities of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager.

    In a multiplatform environment that includes iSeries servers, you can use the two products independently of each other. However, by integrating the two products, you achieve a much more powerful set of capabilities to back up and recover your mission-critical data and applications.

    Based on iSeries V5R2 BRMS and V5.2 of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, this IBM Redbooks publication provides:

    • An overview of BRMS and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager terminology, constructs, and capabilities
    • Cookbook examples to get BRMS and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server up and running on your iSeries server, as well as to set up your iSeries server as the BRMS Application Client to an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server running on the iSeries server
    • Troubleshooting guidance and tips for integrating BRMS and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server on the iSeries server
    • "As is" iSeries user programs and OS/400 commands to enable an iSeries system operator to manage integrated BRMS and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server functions through a single user interface
