How do I delete multiple spare tape media for reuse?
Best answer by Emils 31 December 2020, 00:37
Let me start by explaining what this operation does.
Erase Spare Media operation ensures that old data from tape libraries cannot be recovered once the media is recycled and overwritten. This is done by writing EOD (End of Data) at the beginning of the tape (in the first byte) and the DSS (Data Set Separator) pattern is written to the end of the tape to overwrite the existing data.
You can run the Erase Media operation only on spare media
