As we've been running our second site tape library exclusively on Veeam for a while now (replacing BExec) we no longer need the mail slot to be configured available so I'd like to disable it which turns it back into a "normal" slot.
However I'm aware that this will likely cause a renumbering of ALL of the slots which might appear to Veeam as though all the tapes have been shifted up one slot (i.e. 23 will become 24, 22 ->23 etc.) so I thought I'd check on the best process to do this, i.e. any re-scans/service restart recommendations when making such a change?
