RMGR configuration tasks

This topic describes RMGR configuration tasks.

To configure RMGR for the first time after an initial installation, you perform the procedures that are described in Customizing Recovery Manager functions and utilities.

These procedures configure a single RMGR to work with one stand-alone IMS system in your environment.

You can configure RMGR for use with multiple IMS systems that share a common RECON in a data-sharing environment. The following approaches are available:

  • Beginning with version 4.5.00 of Backup and Recovery Solution for IMS and RECOVERY MANAGER for IMS, you can use a single RMGR to serve all IMS systems that share a common RECON in a data-sharing environment. BMC recommends using a single-RMGR configuration because it simplifies and streamlines implementation, maintenance, and operation of RMGR components. You can use the single-RMGR configuration for both data-sharing IMS systems and stand-alone IMS systems. For more information, see Configuring RMGR in a data-sharing environment.

  • The legacy multiple-RMGR configuration, which requires every IMS system in a data-sharing environment to have its own associated RMGR, is still valid. However, BMC does not recommend this configuration unless you are using the APPLICATION RESTART Control (AR/CTL) suspend-and-resume interface. The single-RMGR configuration does not support the suspend-and-resume interface. For more information, see Implementing a legacy multiple-RMGR configuration.

If you have a legacy multiple-RMGR configuration, you can convert it to a single RMGR configuration. This conversion is recommended for both stand-alone and data-sharing IMS systems. For more information, see Converting to a Single-RMGR configuration.

You can use an existing RMGR configuration as a model for creating a new configuration. This approach is suitable for implementing RMGR in multiple stand-alone IMS systems (systems that do not share a RECON). You can also use this approach to implement RMGR in a production environment after testing. For more information, see Creating a new RMGR configuration from a model.

You can make changes to RMGR configurations as needed. For more information, see Changing an RMGR configuration.
