    Would this help:


    qmedia export


    This command exports the specified media to a given location.

    In case of an error, an error code and description are displayed as: "export: Error errorcode: errordescription"


    qmedia export -b <barcode(s)> -el <exportlocation> [-af <argsfile>] [-tf <tokenfile>] [-tk <token>] [-h]


    -b List of barcodes separated by a comma (,)
    -el Export Location name
    -iep I/E port range separated by a comma (,)

    For example:


    -tf Reads token from a file
    -tk Token string
    -af Reads arguments from a file
    -h Displays help

    Argument File

    barcodes [string] List of barcodes, written one under the other.

    For example:




    server CommServe host name
    exportlocation  Export location
    verifyoml Verify On Media Label (OML) for export
    ieports List of I/E ports where the media will be exported.

    For example:

    001003,001004 and so on.


    Possible exit status values are:

    0 - Successful completion.

    1 - CLI usage failures, due to the use of an unsupported option or missing argument.

    2 - Any other failure.


    Export multiple specified media with barcodes 100401WW and 100402WW to location Exp_Loc

    E:\commandline>qmedia export -b 100401WW,100402WW -el Exp_Loc

    Sample Argument file:


    [ieports] 001003,001004

    Hi Omer, could you clarify your use case better as to why you are looking to perform the move.

    And this is for blank/scratch media correct?

    We have one Qscript to move media from one scratch pool to another. This is not a permanent script and created as a part of customer request. so, you cant find it in our commvault software or store.
