I have a Tl4000 with 4 drives and 4 magazine library for a total of 48 slots minus one slot for cleaning tape and 3 for the I/O port. In many cases the export fails after tape ejecting because the I/O port is full. Who has time to stand by the tape library waiting to open the I/O port. I typically open the magazines to remove or insert tapes. Like CommVault, Veeam B&R needs the ability to mark a number of slots as virtual I/O ports so the UI will show current status of tapes needing to be physically removed and sent off site.
Additionally, It would be very helpful if VeeamOne could incorporate a Vault Tracker function which would keep track of tapes needing to be removed from the library and tapes needing to be returned from the off-site vault. A weekly Vault Tracker report would identify tapes that need to be sent off-site and those that can be returned for reuse.
