arc server bright stor

we are using bright stor arc server for our backups to a dell powervault 16 slot tape autoloader.  we had a mishap were a tape that backed up last nights data threw up this warning when i logged into the server:

one or more of the brightstor arc serve backup engine has stopped, after intial install you may want to perform device config.  prior to starting engine.  ok so I pressed ok then it ran a backup job with todays date. well the issue is that we have offsite tape recovery that we send to iron mountain.  we need to figure what tape has the latest backup on it which should be 01/29/08 well under device status it does not show the 29th anymore it did before we pressed ok so how do i find this tape?  how can i run an inventory?

I'm not sure what you mean by "device status". Is that the Job Status window?

how can i run an inventory?
Manager, Device window, Inventory, it will show a list of all slots, select them all and then select Regular Inventory.

its the device tab selection that is on the right hand side.  you hit that and it displays all the available device periphals then i select the device which is a dell 124t device and then i inventory the tapes. well i was not able to find the correct one.

check the activity log for the record of that backup. It will contain the format name for the tape and the history of that job.
