Is there a command line (or gui command) in netbackup 5.0 (for win) for add a new media in master server? I have not a robotic library and therefore I have not media with bar code...

  • Thru GUI
    Go to Media and Device Management > Media in the NB console
    RIght click " Media"
    Click on "New Volumes"
    Select the proper information from the resulting window. Thats it.

    Thru CLI
    vmadd -m -mt dlt -rt none -p 1
    m - media ID
    mt - media type
    -rt - Robot type (None in your case)
    -p - pool number (determined by vmpool -listall )
