DPM 2007 Free Tape Threshold Excessive Notifications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using DPM 2007, yesterday I received over 8500 email notifications within a couple hours regarding the free tape threshold.  This I am sure would have continued but I turned off the notifications.

    Why did the notifications loop into an Active/Inactive Status and how can I prevent it from occuring again next week?

    Status: Active
    Tape Library : Dell (tm) PowerVault (tm) 124T Autoloader
    Description: Number of free tapes is less than or equals the threshold value.

    Status: Inactive
    Tape Library : Dell (tm) PowerVault (tm) 124T Autoloader
    Description: Number of free tapes is less than or equals the threshold value.


    I have an Auto-Loader with 16 tapes...I understand why the there weren't any available tapes however, I can't understand why the notifications kept reporting active/inactive.

  • Hi,

    I cannot explain the runaway notification, however DPM 2012 has drastic improvements in the alert infrastructure.
