SAN failure lost the backupexec database.

I dowloaded the newest backupexec and was wondering if I can do a tape library inventory. I am installing the latest app now

  • Nothing has changed within Backup Exec in regards Inventory / Catalog operations of tape libraries.
    If you have lost your BE database as the title indicates, then you need to run not just an inventory but a catalog job as well to really see what is on these tapes (in case you need to do a restore).

  • If the tapes had encrypted sets then passphrase will also be needed to run the catalog job post the Inventory of all tapes ( make sure you run an inventory on all available tapes first before starting the catalog
