I am attempting to add additional media to my BRMS configuration. I am using the following command:

ADDMEDBRM VOL(A01001) MEDCLS(ULTRIUM5) VOLCNT(15) INZ(*YES) TEXT('Backs up all user data') DEV(TAPDDBKP) NXTVOLMSG(*NO) LOC(TAPDDBKP)

Where TAPDDBKP is our Data Domain that we are backing up to.

When I run this, I get the following error:  Command ended due to error

Upon further investigation, I am getting the error: Cartridge A01001 not found

In the help text for this, it shows you can run a ADDTAPCTG command to add cartridges.  If I attempt to do this (ADDTAPCTG DEV(TAPDDBKP) CTG(A01001)), I get the following error: Cartridge A01001 not found

I am not sure what I need to do. Any help would be much appreciated!

Haven't used BRMS for many years, so I don't have much to offer.  Is this any help?

The problem ended up being that I needed to add a directory entry for all the other systems within the BRMS network.  Once I did this, the new LPAR was able to allocate a volume for itself and I was able to do a successful backup.
