I recently installed Veeam B&R 8 Update 2 on a physical server directly attached to a HP MSL4048 Tape library. Since the beginning I had a lot of issues in inventorying tapes (tapes won't return in the right slot, problems detecting the barcodes, ...).
I'm planning on replacing all tapes since the actual ones were used with our former backup tool (BackupExec) and I hope It will fix the issues I encounter.
But in the mean time one slot gone missing. It happened while I was doing an Inventory Veeam logs said something like "marking as a cleaning cartridge" and the slot #33 disappeared from the Online media list. I thought Veeam doesn't handle the drive cleaning functionality yet ...
So my question is : How can I untag the slot #33 as the cleaning tape and put the #48 instead ?
