DPM console showing multiple Tape Library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    We have one Tape Drive directly attach with Windows 2012 R2 DPM server with FC connectivity. Recently there was some issue with Tape Library so chassis got replaced for it. Tape Library is fine now but in DPM console, there is showing two tape drive one is offline and another one is online. It means old tape drive information is still there. We tried to re-scan/refresh the Tape Library but no luck. Can someone help to remove old Tape Info from DPM console?

  • HI,

    My problem is with old Tape Library showing offline in DPM console. I want to remove that Tape Library from there. Another online instance already there for Tape Library so i do not want to keep both of them. Only want to keep active one.
