  • Feature request - Tape consolidation
    Posted: 06-14-2017, 3:03 PM

    given the voluminous capacity of lto-7 tapes (and its getting denser), while its nice that i can cram so much stuff on a tape, the disadvantage is as jobs age off, i end up with sparsely populated very expensive tapes that dont become available for sometimes extensive periods of time. as a result i end up having to buy new tapes when i "have" the capacity locked up by aged out jobs.


    can a tape consolidation feature be added please? my old tivoli system had one years ago. thjis would help a lot with my consumables budget

    has this been here all along? i ask the last as i was told by support back wheni was on v10 that there wasnt a good way to do this.
