Problem with tape identification

Created: 24 Sep 2013 | 2 comments


I just install the tape library and is ok, the windows server 2008 r2 and BE 2012 reconigze.

But my tapes don`t have a barcode labes and in BE 2012, show the message Tape Library (no media).

How i do the scan without the barcode labels in my tapes ?

The Scan utility job only works when you have barcodes on the need to run an Inventory to get them recognised.

A scan is much more efficient than an inventory.  If you want to do your own barcode labels, see my article below
