Adding new scratch tapes to TSM library
Posted on 2011-03-23
I have inserted a new tape in library with label 007162 and I want to add it to scratch pool. I have searched on google and got following commands, but none of the commands are working, giving following output :
label libv L3494B search=bulk checkin=scratch labelsource=barcode
ANR8494E LABEL LIBVOLUME: An option specified is not valid for 349X libraries
checkin libvolume L3494B search=yes status=scratch checklabel=barcode
ANR8403E CHECKIN LIBVOLUME: Operation not allowed for 349X libraries
Now the problem is the tape has been moved to some slot in library, how can I add that tape to scratch pool, I have other 9 tapes which I have not loaded in the library yet, as I need to confirm first the commands are working. kindly provide me with the commands so that I can add the new tapes as scratch in library. TSM version is 5.5 running on AIX 5.3. Its bit urgent.
