Backup Exec Media set shows multiple copies of the same tape
We have a Tape Drive that holds up to 16 tapes. A few of the tapes are being displayed twice in Media Sets. Why is this happening? How can I fix this? The DELETE option is grayed out!

Are you sure it's not two different tapes with the same label? Try and erase one of them to see if it gets relabeled. You have to move the tape to the scratch media set first, then you can delete it.
No, for sure all labels are unique. I have no idea how it happened that I have two identical "logical" tapes under Media tab. Anyways I'll try deleting one of them by moving it to the Scratch media, we'll see what happens.
I can't delete them out of scratch media either. What other options do I have?

So far so good, cleaned up the tapes by going to Retired Media, then deleting. I'll let you know how the BEUtility works.
Got it, deleted media once placed into Retired Media.
