I have tapes LTO7 without barcodes. Commvault can't identify them. How can I use them?
I assume you need to purchase barcode labels for them?Thanks,Scott
I wanted to know if Commvault supports tapes without a barcode?
Probably not. I’m sure barcodes are how we identify the tapes.Thanks,Scott
If your tape library doesn’t have a barcode reader, you can set it up as a Blind Library. The tapes get initialized with an On-Media Label (OML) by the system, which is a unique ID generated at the time of first ‘sight’ on the respective tapes.
Note that you may need to run a full discovery on the library, and if the library has already been configured with a barcode reader, you will need to obtain and apply LTO-7 labels to the tapes to make them usable.
If it’s a single tape drive, the configuration process is pretty similar.
