  • Seems we constantly misunderstand one another...

    Before you try and label with new media-id:

    (as per one of my previous posts)

    First, add a new media id in the Media GUI and assign it to a volume pool.

    I have also posted a link to this discussion that explains stadalone media management:


    Say you have 6 physical tapes and you decide to put labels/stickers on them:

    You next go to Media Gui and add new volumes: A00001 - 6
    Ensure density matches that of the tape drive and select a pool.

    Once added, you insert tape A00001 into the tape drive, wait for the 'Ready' light on the drive, then use bplabel as per the TechNote:
    bplabel -m A00001 -d hcart -o -p NetBackup -u 0

    Repeat for rest of tapes.
