This issue has been solved. See solution.

Dear community, 

I am new to netbackup, I have a task which is to replace an old tape library to a new HP MSL 4048 tape library.

After installation, how do I edit the job settings to point to the new tape library?

Is there any guide on how to do that?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you.
