This is regarding the MSEO encription option . Is there any way to verify the image/ media has been encripted or not.
I know only one option that is by checking in the event logs .  Apart from this is there any other way ...

Netbackup Version : 7.0
MSEO version :  6.1.4

bpmedialist -m <mediaid>
Status should say encryption

in gui
tape reports
Images on tape
put in media id
add column Encrypted and Encryption Key tag

deactivate your key to a status that will not allow reading
then try to restore the tape - won't work if it is encrypted with no active key

(I do kms - hardware encryption - so the encrypted column says no, but the key tag shows.  And I took away my kms dir so I had no keys, and I was not able to read the tape)

I don't have to know how to spell....I work on Unix.
NetBackup 7.0.1 - AIX & Windows

Not able to find out...

As per your message it may work only for the default policy encription but this won't show if we do a Encription by MSEO..
