Tape barcode issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new (remote) DPM server that had one backup before I realized that a tape was missing a barcode. I believe DPM internally labelled it "00000008". Once I noticed this had happen I had someone put barcodes on all of the tapes.

    The tape that has a backup on it is now barcode 000021L2 and is listed as a suspect tape. I have tried using the ForceFree.ps1 powershell but it remains listed as suspect. If I run a 'identify unknown tape' job I receive the below error message.

    Status: Active


    Tape Library : Dell (tm) PowerVault (tm) 124T Autoloader

    Tape: Server Protection Group-LT-1Months-Copy0-00000008 (000021L2)

    Description: Detailed tape inventory failed Failed to perform the operation since the tape Server Protection Group-LT-1Months-Copy0-00000008 (000021L2) is not available in Tape Library Dell (tm) PowerVault (tm) 124T Autoloader

    Any ideas?
