Re: tape eject related

try following the same steps that you did to choose to select the media, if that does not help you need to look into the media manager logs

check the below excellent post from Marianne for details.

It will be in Media manager logs and might be overwritten. Why you want that tape, what exactly you trying to find.

Re: tape eject related

/usr/openv/volmgr//debug/robots log will show that tapes that are moved within the library.


Re: tape eject related


robots or daemon logs should have tape eject info.
There is no other place in NBU where eject info is logged.

If you have NOT manually created media manager logs (in volmgr/debug), then your only option is to re-trace your step.
You must've had a valid reason to eject a tape, right? 
How do you normally select tapes to eject? Maybe tapes used for backups in a certain period?
