BRMS Full System Restore Enhancement

When a full system restore is performed using BRMS during the RTSCFG part devices are created, IBMi creates OUTQs for the devices, yet as OUTQs are created information regarding AUTL for the AUTQ is not restored.
An intermediate step before restoring the Configuration could be created that restores OUTQs in QUSRSYS, so that AUTL are properly allocated avoiding to have to manually authorize them after the backup is complete.

    The BRMS team believes that the request described has been solved and is available with the March 2023 BRMS PTFs (7.3 - SI82232, 7.4 - SI82233, and 7.5 - SI82234). An intermediate step to restore output queues in QUSRSYS from media prior to restoring configuration data has been added to the recovery report.

    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.

    Additionally, the BRMS Recovery Report does allow customers to add their own environment specific reminder step to restore the OUTQ objects from QUSRSYS from tape prior to the Recover Configuration Data step.
