BRMS Enterprise Services

BRMS Enterprise Services - Seems to be issues with the way the node policy works and developers notice issues but developers are stating the product is working as design. Node policy is running for all partitions in the environment although they are not assign to the partitions to run any reports. Have to deselect days to run to keep it from running, again, policy is not assign to any partitions. Developers didn't describe in detail where the issues are in the process.

Use Case:

The product is use to send copy of the BRMS recovery reports off site as additional resource in the event have a system and/or site lost.

    The BRMS team has determined this is a very specific use case which appears to have been resolved. Unfortunately, the debug information is no longer available to provide a better explanation of this specific problem so this is being closed. If the problem resurfaces, the BRMS team will try to provide better details on the reasons behind the problem or seek to provide a fix if needed.
