same thing, changed a defective LTO4 internal Standalone drive (IBM-LTO4-HH) at a customer with an identical sparepart, now all the tapes are still stuck in the old media pool with the old (offline) drive.

Hello Tobias,

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.
