We are having IBM TSM 5.5 backup software with TS3200 backup library.
Can anyone provide me with step-by-step guide or instruction how to checkout tapes and then checkin tapes.
TS3200 library have one I/O slot with 3 slots which can be opened and tapes removed or inserted. What I have to do is to checkout 5 tapes with data, put the tapes in this I/O 3 slots , remove them physically from TS3200 library, and than add 5 new tapes, first time 3 and second time 2 because I/O the slots are only 3.

Hi

You can do one at a time or all 5 at one time.  Just use your checkout command with
remove=no

Open in new window

added to it;

So you can 1 at a time;

checkout libv libr1 vol1 remove=no

Open in new window

or all;
checkout libv libr1 vollist=vol1,vol2...voln remove=no

Open in new window


for the second command above you can then open the left or right hand magazine using the library functions and then physically remove them.  

To check in the next 5, you also have options.  You can insert the volumes in to the I/O slots and run your
label libv

Open in new window

command with
search=bulk

Open in new window

then once your 3 are labelled and checked in you do the next 2.
 
Once you run the label libv command, don't forget to reply to the outstanding request.  You will have to run
q req

Open in new window

and then once you know the request number run
reply nnn

Open in new window

where nnn is the request number

You can do the 5 at once, but I think you're best doing 3 then 2.  Read up about the "label libv" command.  It is not difficult to understand.

See how you go.

Cheers, JP.

my question is very old, more than a month, and we already paid for external company to do it, because nobody reply to my question. At now i cannot test and confirm  your solution is working.
