BRMS does the mounting, demounting, and expiring of volumes on request from IBM Tivoli
Storage Manager.

1.2 General considerations for backing up your iSeries data
Before you start setting up your backup and restore environment, you must thoroughly
understand why and when you back up your data, as well as what to back up. To help you
understand these concepts, see “Consideration before you begin” on page 370, which
contains several basic questions for you to answer.
1.2.1 Data in an iSeries server
There are two major classifications of data within the iSeries server, user data and system
data. Understanding the grouping of objects into these two data classifications is important in
understanding the scope and limitations when using BRMS or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager to
back up iSeries objects.
