Barcode Label & Library Partition
I have following backup scenario.
BE.2014 is backing up 5 servers to IBM TS3100 Tape Libary, 5 days in a week. I have to keep at least weeks of data, then they get overwrite
SERVER1 = MONDAY / SET1 = DISK1
SERVER2 = TUESDAY / SET1 = DISK2
SERVER3 = WEDNESDAY / SET1 = DISK3
SERVER4 = THURSDAY / SET1 = DISK4
SERVER5 = FRIDAY / SET1 = DISK5
I have configured Library Partitions for 5 Slots, and bind the each day job with each slot Like
SERVER1 = MONDAY / SET1 = DISK1 = SLOT 1
SERVER2 = TUESDAY / SET1 = DISK2 = SLOT 2
SERVER3 = TUESDAY / SET1 = DISK3 = SLOT 3
SERVER4 = TUESDAY / SET1 = DISK4 = SLOT 4
SERVER5 = WEDNESDAY / SET1 = DISK5 = SLOT 5
I have implemented barcodes to the tape cartridges and now library is recognizing the cartridges via there barcode label. My question is that currently I insert catridges according to label in the library like Monday = Slot1 , Tuesday = Slot2 and so on
Is there any way I can insert cartridges in any slots (randomly) and BE picks the tape according to the bar code label and write data according to the job?
