Tape Managment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I run a tape management report to see which tapes are due online in the next 1 week. It showed me a tape "AWI703L5" due in the next week for the full backup on certain date and time (which is 1 day from today). I inserted that tape into the library and when I inventory the library it showed me the tape as Marked Offline. I cannot erase the tape and cannot mark it free. My question is how DPM will reuse this tape for the full backup. Do I have to manually delete the tape using the Power Shell script or actually it will rewrite the tape. I am very confused please help me so infutre I would know how to manage my tapes.

    Thank you in advance.
