Cleaning Tape

Cleaning Tape

Cleaning Tape

I have a new install using Simpana 8 and a Scalar 50 library. I have a bar code sheet for 200 tapes. None on the sheet are marked CLN. I have purchased a cleaning tape and would like to label it with a bar code and identify it as a cleaning tape. I see where in "media by groups" "cleaning tapes" there is a tab for a bar code but where do I define the particular bar code as a cleaning tape. Make sense?

RE: Cleaning Tape

Easy way, mark down the label number that you put on the cleaning tape, I just use a regular label (I tried the cleaning labels with the CLN and commvault did not like them, I just made a note of what labels I use for cleaning 1-50 at all sites), import the tape, locate the tape in Commvault, should be under default scratch at this point. Right click on the tape and choose move, select cleaning media pool from the top drop down and then cleaning media in the bottom, click ok and answer yes to the move question.

RE: Cleaning Tape

Thanks, with a star!
