BRMS GUI
BRMS Setup via Wizards

Especially Good for:


new customers
Small customers
Domino customers

Beware for:
Customers who want to share a media
policy among multiple saves prior to i 6.1

Useful Functions
Object Omits at the control group level
Restoring IFS objects
Networking Status

Most functions are on GUI now


Migration likely wont ever be on GUI
