  • Future media prediction and tpe recall ...
    Posted: 01-27-2019, 7:09 PM

    Hi Everyone,

    I am managing a fairly new environment for a customer, and I need to try and identify probable future tape requirements so they can roughly budget for tape purchases.

    Looking around the exisiting reports (CV 11)  I can't really see anything that gives me what I'm looking for, especially considering I have multiple SP's all with extended retention settings.

    Does anyone know a good way of identifying what I need?

    It would be great if you see future predicted media pools, even if they were based on current sizings, but so far I haven't seen this.

    Also would like to know if there are any reports which would get me the list of recall media's, wherein i can consolidate and get them to the site location (tape Recall) 

    Any help appreciated, even if its a fairly long winded solution.

    Report\ Process Suggestion for your Recalls Feature Name Vault Tracker




    Recall Media

    The Recall Media feature allows you to bring media back temporarily from an export location for a specific operation, and then return the media to the export location when the operation is complete. For example, you can export media to another location with the intention of keeping the media at the export location for an defined period of time, but bring the media back from the export location for a specific purpose (such as a data recovery operation) prior to the original return date.

    Thank you for the reply, but i am looking for the below issues which i am facing.

    In our environment, we are using many tapes and our goal is to reuse the tapes as we perform media refresh. So i need a report which lets me know which media/tape(outside library) to be recall (Tape recall) as normal delivery used to refresh so that i can send the report to the team and they can recall them during week  and perform media refresh which can be used for the weekend backups. Please suggest me if there is any kind of report which suits my requirements.
