Password protected tapes.
Ok...next challenge. I inserted an old tape full backup of my previous file server shares to inventory and catalog to test that I can indeed pull data from the old tapes and I got the following error "The password provided in the job properties does not match the password for this media." We/I (inherited the old configuration) did not password protect the tapes unless it was automatcially applied by BEX10d when new tapes were added to the media set during preconfigured backup jobs ...configured by my predecessor. I don't think so b/c i have worked with these tapes before to do restores and did not require to enter a password.
I came across a users having the same error and they were referred to TECH194494. Is the only work around? If so, i'd need some clarification. I don't understand in the solution how runnnig the commands from the BEMCLI circumvents the password prompt issue for the tape in BEX2012. Can anyone explain the commands (eg. "enter password on the blank line" then "use the $pass variable in the catalog job"..get-bemedia B2D000031??). "To catalog backup to disk media", B2D, does not seem to refer to Tape media or restore from tape media.
