Catalog New Tapes

Hi Everyone,

So we just recovered all of our data but we still have some folders on our file server that need to be restored from tape.

I have inserted 5 tapes that came from offsite into the autoloader.

What is the process for getting the tapes back into SBE so SBE recognizes all of them and i can use them for restoring?

I thought i did it correctly but i still get SBE asking me to insert tape media 0000006L5 to use.

and that tape is in the auto loader. i can see it in SBE

Any help would be appreciated!

  • Hello, What have you done so far?

    uncheck the option  

    "Request all Media in the sequence for catalog operations" click on the Backup Exec icon> Configuration & settings > Backup Exec Settings > Catalog.

    and then inventory and catalog again.

  • So far tapes are all in.

    I click on Slots and i can see all the tapes, and then i right clicked on the slots that were not showing anything and i chose Scan.

    Then i did an inventory command.

    Now i am not sure how to catalog all the tapes at once so all of the media is available for restore in SBE

  • This is the error i keep getting even though i have done inventory and i right click on that specific tape and choose catalog

  • Try the steps per this KB -

  • Try right-clicking on the library and select inventory
