  • Question

  • Hello

    I have a Medium changer ( MC)  that appears in DPM with no tape writer (TW)  , both TW and MC are in windows and have correct drivers

    DPM drivemappingtool reports no errors

    .\DPMLibraryTest.ex e /CERTIFY /LL

    Found 1 Tape Libraries

    Found 1 Standalone Drives

     In the SQL database in dbo.tbl.MM_Global_Drive I have this

    To me it looks like it is detecting the same TW twice , how can I get rid of the TW that is not the correct one assuming it is deviceid AE6AC68E-A6A9-4CAA-B50B-52C91F814214

    Thanks
