I would like to know how to create a report that shows a daily average of free tapes in my inventory. I need a report to show my to boss that we need to buy more tapes.

I have araound 550 tapes and when I change the full tapes in my midia server I never have enough. I keep data on tape for 4 weeks.

Hi,

 

Only way to do this is to crack open the BEDB which Symantec don't recommend as they don't publish the tables on this.

If you do, you're going to have to trawl through the list of tables to get your information. Alternatively, if a canned report doesn't exist, look at something like Solardwinds Storage Manager which will have good reporting for BE.

Otherwise check these out:
