System Center Data Protection Manager 2010: DPM server cannot inventory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm using DPM 2010 running on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. I have attach Tape libraries to the server. 

    I saw ibm totalstorage 3573 tape library. then I click inventory but it failed as below:

    The detailed inventory of tape failed for the following reason: (ID 3316). DPM could not reserve the drive resource because one of required drive resources is not online or it needs cleaning or servicing.

     

    Recommended action

    1) View and resolve all alerts for the library and its drive(s). Retry the operation after resolving the alerts.

    2) Go to the Library tab in the Management pane and click on Rescan. Once the rescan operation has completed successfully, retry the operation.

    What should I do? Do you have any solution?

     

    BR,

  • Hi Khemarin,

    In the error it states that one tape drive isn't online. Go to your device manager and verify that all of your tape drives and your media library is ok. Does all the tape drives show up in the DPM console?

    If everything looks ok but you still got the problem please try to use DPMDriveMappingTool.exe to remap the tape drives.

  • Running the utility did not help, DPM 2012 R2, is overloaded with an error at the following:

    cassette mode UNKNOW, or try to run Reskan indentifitsirovat tape - just crashes and error console reboots.
