Tape Library doesn't recognise new tapes
Running BE2012 SP4, when I replace the tapes in my HP G2 Autoloader, the new tapes aren't recognised at all.
- Scanning the libraries
- Inventory now on the libraries
- Inventory and catalog on the libraries
- Scanning, Inventory now and Inventory and catalog on each slo
- Turning it (the tape machine) off and on again
I have searched the web without success.
Potentially we have been given poor advice on how to set the tapes up?
We have 8 slots. Slots 1-5 are "daily-weekly", 6-7 are monthly and 8 is cleaning tape.
Each tape is labelled: Daily-weekly-x for x in range(15); monthly-x for x in range(6)
The procedure is that every month I swap out the previous set, and put in the new set. I did this last week, replacing daily-weekly-11 (through15) and monthly-5 and -6 with daily-weekly1 (through 5) and monthly-1 and -2.
Despite all the scanning, inventory and cataloging etc; I still have "daily-weekly-12" (through 15) and "monthly-5" and "monthly-6" listed.
For reasons unknown to me, slot one is listed as "Empty". I think that happened after a scan.
What am I doing wrong?
