I have a problem using BRMS and a Tape Library defined as *USRMLD. I configured a *USRMLB and I defined 4 drives within this MLB. In my System Policy, I defined *MEDCLS as device to use. With V5R2, it was working when I was running 2 concurrent backup jobs from the same AS/400; the 1st job was selecting the 1st drive, and the 2nd job was selecting the 2nd drive as the 1st one was used. Since we went to V5R3, it's not working anymore... The 1st job selects the 1st drive and the 2nd job sees that the 1st drive is in use, but waits and then fails after trying to use the 1st drive. I tried to run 2 concurrent jobs from 2 different AS/400 connected to the same FC drives, and in this case, it's working fine. 1st job selects the 1st drive and 2nd job selects the 2nd drive... It's driving me crazy... Do you have any idea of problem ? Thanks one more time for your help... Best regards,

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

What is your maximum and minimum requirement for the second backup job. Could you try to specify only one?

    Hello Welly, Well... I don't really know what you mean by maximum and minimum requirement... Let me try to explain you what I'm trying to do: I have 2 FC Drives part of *USRMLB (STK library for instance) connected to my iSeries and I have multiple BRMS jobs of backup. Each job is configured to use only one ressource using *MEDCLS. The first job starts and select the drive 1... OK normal. Before the end of the first job, the second job starts and looks for a drive and select also the 1st drive (already in use by an other job) and then fails!!! In earlier release (V5R2 for example), the second job sees that the 1st drive is in use and selects the second one... This is what I wish to have... Thanks one more time for your help, Pierre.
