The site has a lot more information about BMRS. More information can be found <a href=”http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/support/brms/domcopyctlgs.html”>here</a> and an online class is available <a href=”http://www.microtrain.net/ibm_courses/course/backup-and-recovery-media-services-brms-for-system-i-ibm-137.html”>here</a>.
Good Luck!

To put it in simpler terms – a BRMS “control group” defines what you want BRMS to do when it runs a backup process. BRMS comes with three “default” groups – *BKUGRP to back up all user data, *SYSGRP to back up all system data, and *SYSTEM to back up the entire box.

You can define your own groups, it is easiest to copy an existing group and modify the copy. I generally start with the *BKUGRP as it already is set up to backup user data
