Hello,
I added new DLT tapes to library and inventory the media database, the new tapes are added but media ID has first one letter missing than the physical label on the tape but Barcode matches the label.
I added Barcode rule to add C in front. Deleted the tapes and reinventory the database , still problem reamins same:
Media ID does not match Barcode.
Can someone help?
Thanks.

To resolve this, you have to change media ID generation rule.
Click Advanced Option in Robot Inventory window, and click New in media ID generation tab.
If your physical barcode has 7 chars and you want to use first 6 chars as media ID, set barcode length to 7 and media ID generation rule as "1:2:3:4:5:6".

Thanks a lot for the answer.
It did resolve but something to mention here is barcode has 7 (combination of letter and digit) letters, after creating a rule under media ID generation , it started showing :
Media ID CQK157 and barcode CQK157S.
Without the rule it was showing QK157S, I tried
other combinations but looks like only 6 characters are supported for media id.
Am I right?
Thanks.

Yes, right. Media IDs can be from1 to 6 characters in length.
