Duplicating to another disk or tape from an AdvancedDisk

Hi,

 

I'm wanting to duplicate a number of images from one storage unit to another, to free up the disk shelf for redeployment. Using the catalog section, when I select duplicate from the top box, I can't select AdvancedDisk (only Basic Disk) so I can't search for the images to Duplicate.

Is there another way to do this when using an AdvancedDisk?

 

Thanks

What version of NetBackup ? -

What version of NetBackup ? - perhaps this is a known issue and there might be an EEB available.

Just tested this on 7.6.1 and it works fine on the Admin console, with Duplicate selected in the top box I can select Advanced Disk as a disk type.

As determined, if you serach for images using verify in the top box, you cannot duplicate any found as duplicate is greyed out on the right click menu, you have to search the times with duplicate in the top box as you have already found.
