Hi,

I am looking for a way, for example via workflow, to set all started (partially written) media (tapes) to full at the end of a quarter so that the backups for the new quarter all go to new tapes. We can not use the vault tracker because there are not enough export slots (or how does it work if a medium is to be exported via vault tracker but all mailslots are full ??). Or can we also use the vault tracker to just mark the media of the past quarter for export only (and disabling further writes)  without exporting the tapes  to the mailslots themselves so that we can take out the tapes in the order we want?

Best regards

Frank

Thank you for your contact!

We offer a "qmedia" command that allows for marking specified media as full. Please refer to the following link for more information: https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/expert/11371_qmedia_markfull.html 

To utilize this command, we require a list of barcodes to serve as the input file. To obtain this list, we can integrate the Vault Tracker workflow. https://cloud.commvault.com/webconsole/softwarestore/#!/136/678/10121 

This workflow will generate a list of barcodes that can be used as input for the qmedia command.

You have two options for automating this process: Rest API or Customer workflows. You can access information on how to set up either method through the following links:

If you require assistance with automating this process, please contact your Account Manager. They can engage our Personalization Team (a paid service) to create a custom workflow for you.
