Can't "associate with media set"

Created: 06 Aug 2012 | 7 comments

This is a new installation of BE 2012.  When I right-click on a tape the option for "associate with media set" is grayed out.  Why is that?

Possible obvious - have you created any media sets yet?

No insult intended...

No, not insulted.  Yes, that was the first thing I did was create two media sets.

Don't forget to give a "Thumbs Up" or Mark as "Solution" if someones advice has helped you.

Yes, those were the instructions included with BE.  I followed those.  It's grayed out.

Try an inventory operation on media and see if that enables the option to assoicate with media set.
