IS there a way to completely remove a tape drive from Backup Exec Storage
We have had ongoing issues with BE2012 and our IBM 3100 robotic library. I am pretty sure they have mostly been caused by hardware issues related to the robotic library.
One of the drives has now completely died (the library has 2 drives) and the only way I can get the library to work is to physically remove the drive. This is not a major problem as it is possible to get all my jobs to work only on one drive (I have set all my jobs to specifically use the good drive).
The problem is that Backup Exec still tries to find two drives. I have tried to set the 'missing drive' as offline and disabled, but it still seems to complain about the drive being offline.
Is there a way to completely remove the drive from Backup Exec > Storage so that it shows my Robotic Library with only one available drive?
