I had created number of media pools for arround 25 tapes & these bundle of tapes i use for daily backup with a retention period of a week.But after completion of retention period,these tapes is automatically moves to netbackup pool.Due to this i need to again move these tapes to particular define media pool.Is that any one face this problem with NBU 6.5.3.
When you insert new (fresh) media , and inventory it, you can specify which volume pool it will go into (Default is netbackup). After completion of retention period, tapes WILL go back to the volume pool where it was first inventoried.
I selected yes for it to go to scratch... but the media that was assigned to netback before i changed it is still in Netback volume pool. Do i just RIght click and change it all to scratch? I want to make sure there are no "valid" (non-expired images on it). I will make sure all my policies are not using the netbackup pool and if not change them to scratch.
You could always create a set of barcode rules (using the vmrule command) for each of your tapes and assign them to a specific volume pool, that way when images expire, netbackup will assign that media to the correct volume pool rather then send it back to a scratch pool.
