This issue has been solved. See solution.

when i import my tapes from site 1 to site 2.As i inventory them,they go to scratch pool .And i manually have to move them to somw other pool to avoid overwritten.

Why this is happening?

What settings can be set to avoid this?

Put the barcode rule in the advanced options for the robot.

Just put the first 2 characters and assign them to any pool that you want these to go to. Check the attached file for example

Barcode of media which is being imported?

See you can't put the barcode of all the media, just put the first 2 character that you are importing, if you have different barcodes then there would be multiple rules. Please check the barcode.jpg screenstho in my first post. It will give you a clear view.

Yes you are correct.But we have same structure of barcode on both sitesAll media starts from A000---

You really need to apply some logic here. Have you made ANY attempt to even LOOK at existing Barcode Rules? The moment you do that, you will immediately see WHY tapes are going into Scratch.
If you also explore the options in Inventory screen, you will see that you can manually select a Volume Pool for current Inventory session.

Ahh wait you mean you want to import these tapes into exact same pools what they were in the 1st site. You might have created same pool structure on both the sites and now want those tapes to be imported here in the same pools.If that is the case you won't be able to do it unless you restore the catalog information.I thought you wanted all these tapes to go into a particular pool instead of scratch pool.

Still you can use barcode rule to import to the pool that has got maximum tapes and then cherry pick the other ones.
