For those that might run across this issue, this was an upgraded veeam b&r server (7->8->9.0->9.5). I worked with Veeam support. We changed the following things and it now works.
- AWS - Change MediaChanger type to "AWS-Gateway-VTL"
- Computer Management -> Device Manager - changed device/drivers for Tape Library to use "Sony TSL-A500C AutoLoader.
- Finally, in VBR, Tape Infrastructure, Tape Library -> Properties. Tick off "Use native SCSI commands instead of Windows driver.
We tried several things and i'm not sure if it was a combination or if the final step was what was needed.
After a re-inventory the barcode field is now populated when we view the properties of the tapes. The name is still off though for existing tapes. New tapes have the name assigned to the bar code. This works for me since i can now look at the properties to find out the tape for the legacy tapes.
