IBM Power Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The Power teams will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

No option output to Print when restore using BRMS (WRKMEDBRM)

When restoration are run using WRKMEDBRM there are no option to specify output *Print so when there are many objects not restored its difficult to check in DSPLOGBRM as no output generated to shows total restored and total not restored


Use Case:

Same output as native restore

    The BRMS team will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. The BRMS team will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this request.

    Hi Team,

    My answer as below :-

    The BRMS team needs more information to further assess your Request for Enhancement. When using WRKMEDIBRM to do restores, BRMS does offer the output option for recoveries of *OUTFILE which can be specified. This is accessible using WRKMEDIBRM Option 7 to restore a library, then selecting F9 Recovery defaults and changing the restore command defaults output options for recoveries. Were you aware of this option and saying *OUTFILE is not helpful enough?
    [Aizuddin]Yes, I aware there is outfile parameter in the WRKMEDIBRM during restore operation but it will difficult for Operator to query the outfile to get the output.

    Is this request for the addition of the *PRINT on this interface?
    [Aizuddin] Yes, If there is output *PRINT in the parameter on the , we will get the details of object has been restored/not restored in the first glance and it will be easier for operator.

    What is the comparison to native that is mentioned, using RSTLIB command with the parameter OUTPUT(*PRINT)?

    We appreciate your feedback to these questions, thank you for the input.
