Drives in robot showing as Standalone

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

I am trying to add a new Win 2008 media server to Solaris master server and configure a SL500 Tape library and 12 LTO5 drives on new media server.

The tape library and drives are detected at OS level; how ever when i configure the drives through Netbackup GUI, all the LTO5  drives are showing as standalone. Under TLD i could see around 10 drives with message "Attached to remote host".

I have attached the screenshot for more clarity

Can someone please help me out.

Hi

Check output from 'scan' to see what the robot itself reports.

'Unused element' means that the robot itself is unaware of the drive(s).

A complete power cycle will probably 'fix' the robot status, after which NBU will pick up the robot drive contents correctly.

Also if this is virtual library please check link below

The drives showing as standalone on the screen shot you have shown - you can actually 'drag and drop' them up into the robot  - worth a go ...

I configured the drives as standalone and then added them manually to TLD from Netbackup console. Now when i re-scan the drives the drives are showing inside the robot.

Thanks everybody for sharing your thoughts.
