  • Alert for Tape Unload/Eject while AuxCopy
    Posted: 02-13-2018, 9:07 AM


    I Have a Standalone Tape Drive. When a Auxcopy has filled up a Tape i get a Popup on the MediaAgent that i should change the Tapes but i do not get an email. After some hours i get "Media mount and Usage" Errors via Mail.


    Is it possible to create an Alert which sends me an email, when the Tape in the Library is unloaded /ejected so that i can immediately go to the server-room an put a new tape in?


    CommVault: v11 SP10

    CommServe=MediaAgent: Win2012R2

    Tape: LTO6 Standalone Drive

    Hi Franz,

    Yes, you can make a custom alert react to any Event Viewer alert which pops up in the GUI, in general.  I think it will work for this too.

    Go to Alerts --> Create a new alert --> Category (select Operation) --> Type (select Event Viewer) click Next to the next screen, select the client and then you will recieve fields where you can customize which event to catch and report on.
