Media deletion from netbackup and datadomain or CDL's
I am looking for a detailed tech note or document which guides me step by step on how to delete medias from 1st netbackup and then delete them from data domain.
Also is it true that if a media has nothing in time assigned it's a media which has nothing on it or in other words a scratch media?
My point here is I think i have loads of virtual medias (coming from VTL's data domain) which has nothing in time assigned and that site is running on ddboost with no use of any medias, so How can I delete them from netbackup and data domain to get raw space freed up in data domains.
Unassigned means there are no
Unassigned means there are no images associated with it. Scratch in effect (even if not in Scratch pool).
Deleting them in the GUI will completely remove them from NBU database. There is no 'unassign from robot'. Maybe a logical move to standalone. No need to do this if you want to get rid of them.
Delete from DD as well to prevent 'someone' from doing an inventory, which will re-add the tapes.
