I wanted to know if there was a specific way to remove tapes from the normal rotation (Simpana 8.0 SP4). I’ve identified a few defective tapes and I’m ready to destroy them. Is there anything specific that I need to do on the Commserve side of things? Can I simply select the tape and delete it? Is there a recommended procedure to cleanly remove the tape without causing me headaches down the road? If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated.
Hello Justin, Once you have exported the tape out of the library you can just delete the media and that will remove from the CommCell permanently
Thanks for the quick reply Marc.
You can select delete while in the library, and it will ask if you want to export before it deletes it. Export and delete in one operation.
Your welcome Justin. Thanks for participating in our forums. If you don't have any more questions and that answered your question if you could just mark the thread solved so others will benefit. Thanks
