In our production environment we use Back up Exec 2014 its working fine but when we inventory the slots of Tape library library LTO-5
its give the alert message is Media CLNA 07 has been moved to retired media set because the back up exec can not reconize data on the tape the purpose of cleaning tape is to clean the slots of tape library we have done some work around to resolve the issue which are as below.
1. remove the bar codes with new one
2. replace the old cleanning tape with new tape
your kind cooperation is required.
I have not seen that error pop up for a cleaning tape before. What robotic library are you using? What brand of LTO drive?
The best practice is to mark the slot (frequently hte highest numbered slot) as a cleaning slot in BE. That will prevent BE from mounting a cleaning media when doing an inventory and wasting cleaning cycles.
