    Hello,

    is there an option (additional or role setting) to prevent creating a new New Outside Storage Location when export a tape?

    The local admins should select only pre defined storage locations when export media.

    Regards, Kay

    Hellp 

    Please let us know what permission  local admin is having currently  . To export media from Library and to create new location User need Library Management Permission or Library Administrative permission . Since since both action need same permission there is hard to block to create new location for now . One way you can restrict is , give permission to given location and given Library  to end user.  So that  in the export location it will list the location for which he is having permission . So they will pick only that location during export. Let us know this will help . 

     

     

    Thanks

    Hi Karthik,

    thanks for the response.  I assume we will clean the 'locations' by script periodically.

    Regards, Kay

    User can delete Location from GUI manually now . Please let us know  your use case , if you need automatic location deletion .

    Hello Karthik,

    the media exports will be handled by local it, 200-300 sites worldwide. The central it has to harmonize the naming of the export locations. Prevent creating a new export location would help.

    Regards, Kay

    Thanks for the additional info. Will request some more information 

    In  Each site IT admin

     

    - What capability this  local IT admin had in the Commcell ? 

    - Want to confirm  Each site has regular Tape library or StandAln Library ( Library without library controller and single Drive ) ?

    - is it ok if each IT admin see all Location or we have to restrict location for each admin ?

     

     

    Thanks
