Schedule a Tape Slot Scan Instead of Inventory


We have a DL6020 and the Inventory takes too long to run. We are using bar coded media and all media has been imported and cataloged.

I need to know how to schedule a scan of the slots in the tape library so Backup Exec know which tapes are in which slots without having to run an inventory.

Thank you,
Logan

you cannot schedule a scan ..so no workaround

This has been proposed on the "Ideas" are of the forum

head on over there and give it a "Thumbs Up"  and it may very well appear in a future release

Re: Schedule a Tape Slot Scan Instead of Inventory


Why are you wanting to schedule a scan?  The only scenario that I am aware of would be after a bulk load, in which case you would do a scan when you are done.  Otherwise, if media are imported & exported via BE, then BE should always know what is in the library.
