DPM 2012 R2 - Removing old/overdue tapes? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have some old tapes that have been removed due to physical failure but still appear in the tape management reports.

    I've certainly come across some very old threads linking to a script to remove old tapes for DPM 2010/2012, however I've also come across a post suggesting that this old script not long works and corrupts the DPM 2012 R2 database.

    Can someone please confirm how I remove these with DPM 2012 R2?

  • I can't believe nobody ever responded to this.  I am weary of running the SQL scripts designed for 2007/2010.  Did you ever find a reasonable or tested solution for this in 2012 R2?

  • No unfortunately, would very much appreciate any help on how-to achieve this still.

  • It would be nice.  For my tape swaps, I use a PS script to get the data from the databases of my DPM servers.  Its all done remotely and aggregates the CSVs into one single folder labelled by the DPM server's name.  So, I just added a bit to the script to omit certain tape barcodes.  Works fine for the guys who swap tapes for me.
