Inserting Tapes Manually
I'm trying to script in Perl using the command "vmupdate." Sometimes we have tapes that get ejected from a vault mixed with tapes that were going to be inserted as scratch on our Tape Library. The problem we get is if we run "vmupdate" using the flag -empty_map, it will inject all the media to the Tape Library. The reason we do this is to avoid conflict with the TLD. Is there a command other than vmchange that would allow me to insert tapes manually?
vmchange -res -multi_inject -w -ml media_id:media_id -verbose -rn robot_number -rt robot_type -rh server
This will take all tapes in MAP and insert them. It doesn't matter if I use the -ml flag. So the final question:
Is there a way to manually inject tapes by specifying barcodes?
Thanks in advance.
