How to remap to a different tape drive/library on MS DPM 2012? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello and thanks for any help

    I want to remap our DPM 2012 to a temporary tape drive until we get a new tape library. I looked in the bin folder but there aren't any utilities to remap; like DPMDriveMapping.exe. Do I need to manually change the DPMLA.xml file and rescan?

    Bonus question: the "new"/temporary tape drive is seen by the OS and by DPM but I don't see any slots like I did on the preexisting tape library that is broken. How can I see the slots on the temporary tape library?

    Thanks!!!!!

  • I think I got it.

    I located the SCSI information on the temporary tape drive/library to make a new DPMLA.xml and replace the old one. I guess I'll know for sure tonight.

    The slots showed up after I loaded the correct driver for the changer.
