how to rename tape drive?

Post by fgw »

would like to rename the drive itself, not the library.

tape infrastructure
library 1
Drive 1 (Drive ID: Tape 3)

would like to change Drive ID from "Tape 3" to e.g. "Tape 2"

anyone knows if this is possible?

Hi Franz,

It's windows parameter which can be found in the Device Manager -> properties of the tape device -> tape symbolic name.
So, it cannot be changed in the Veeam B&R, you can try to switch the port or try to change it in the properties of the tape device. Thanks!
