I have a few questions about the Storage Information Report / Media Information Report.
Some entries are bolded while others are not. I can't find anything in the CommVault online documentation that explains what the bolding is but it appears to indicate tapes that have either Read/Write errors or Media Label errors.
Question 1: Am I correct that a bolded entry indicates a tape that's had either read-write or media label errors?
Question 2: A read-write error is self explanatory. What is a "Media Label" error?
Question 3: Some tapes appear as "Retired Media". Is there a process for dealing with these so that CommVault knows they are removed, destroyed and are not coming back?
Question 4: Some tapes have media information like this:
Writes: 14, Reads: 0, Mounts: 17, Read_Write_Errors: 0, Media_Label_Errors: 3, Reuses: 10, Discovered: 03/19/2014 14:08:48
But others have media information like this:
Writes/Reads/Lifetime: 21/0/5000, Read-Write_Errors/Lifetime: 0/5, Media_Label_Errors/Lifetime: 5/5, Reuses/Lifetime: 17/260, Discovered/Lifetime: 02/16/2014 10:35:03 /360 Months
Can anyone explain why there is a difference?
