Hello Dima P,
Thankyou for your reply. Is the back-up data on the tapes retained and are the tapes usable for the excisting back-up to tape jobs? In the following forum post you describe this: tape-f29/moving-tape-media-from-pool-associated-replaced-tape-drive-t21434-15.html
Thanks for sharing the case ID. I believe, you can do the following:
- Remove the affected tapes from the catalogue. It will force VBR to "forget" those tapes but wont erase the data
- Delete the media pool, since it’s not operational any longer
- Import tapes to the library. All previously written tapes will appear in the “Imported” media pool. You would not be able to continue the media sets on these tapes but you will be able to perform restore if you need.
Need to say that this importing issue and drive replacement case is carefully handled in the upcoming v9 version thanks to new Global Media Pool feature.
Can this be done in a different and easier way in the latest Veeam version? Like u described in the following article https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95
