How can i accelerate TAPE Catalog to a brand new BE 12.5 Server

Created: 26 Feb 2013 | 1 comment

Hi,

I recently had to rebuild from scratch my BE 12.5 backup server due to a motherboard problems. I purchased a brand new server and installed software and updated to latest realse. Everything seems to be working fine. I also have a Qualstar 12 Tape Changer with 1 IBM Utrium Drive. So far I can see all slots and tapes. i did an inventory and found all tape names. I then started doing an inventory on one of my tapes and so far I have the job has been running for almost 8 hours for just one tape.

I wanted to know if there was a faster way to inventory these tapes. I have about 15 tapes that i would like to have ready in case of backups for the next months.

thank you,

I believe your cataloging process is taking a long time and not your inventory.  Have you check whether there is any alert asking for some other tape or something else?
