Restoring an IFS file from a tape backup could take hours (or days) when there are many entries in *LINK. BRMS should specify automatically the POSITION parameter, when the position itself is available in QA1ALI2 file (LIPOSMF1 field).
WRKMEDIBRM VOL(yyyyyy) // specify a volume created with a CTLGRP *LINK option "Retain object detail" *YES Option 9 on *LINK Option 9 on a folder that contains at least one file Option 9 on the single row displayed Option 7 on a file (or more) Option 7 on each file Press F9 to show all options SEQNBR is pre-filled with IFS file sequence number, but POSITION is always *FIRST. Doing so, the restore operation takes forever (never been able to see it finish). Manually setting POSITION with the lowest LIPOSMF1 value (found in QA1ALI2), restore completes in just minutes.
