BRMS Tape Library Automation in Restricted Mode ?

Hello there, I have read the Redbooks and the BRMS manuals but I still didn't figure out how you can automate a multi-volumes restricted state backup with BRMS and a Tape Library. As I well understood (I'm pretty new within AS/400) during Restricted State, all sub-systems are down... even BRMS... So who will request to mount the next tape ? Is BRMS reactivating some sub-systems during the Restricted State ? How to specifiy which subsystems to reactivate or which program to run ? Can someone explain me how it's working ? Thanks in advance, Pierre.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi Pierre,
No need to worry about Automation in BRMS when doing restricted state backup with BRMS cause BRMS will work below OS400 level, so you just make sure that you have enough cartridge in your Media Class and all the cartridges in good condition. Then you are ready to go. BRMS will moount the tape by itself even in restricted state, thanks to IBM who already give BRMS the ability to operate even when there’s no subsystem is UP and running.

Best regards,
