Phantom Library in Report RRS feed

  • Question

  • My DPM 2K7 Tape Management Report shows 2 phantom libraries that I'd like to remove. I've rescanned and the Admin Console only shows the current attached hardware, but the reports shows all the past drives that were attached to the system.  How can I clean out the old configuration?

  • Hi,

    Unfortunatly, when a library is removed from a DPM server, it's information is still contained in the SQL db.   You can see the library information for present and past libaries in the output of the get-dpmlibrary powershell script.  There is no easy way to remove this information from SQL, so best option would be to rename your current library to be something meaningful in the DPMUI, and the reports will follow that naming.
