I just want a report that tells me what tapes were written to in the past "custom date range". Just to find out what tapes are written to so i can remove them daily is extra work because the reporting capability does nothing this simple. The reporting is actually a JOKE and i dont even use it for these reasons.
Returned tapes need to be moved to "free" and a short erase run on they will not be used for new jobs. I've noticed the sequence number changes from 0 to 1 when this is done. Not sure what this signifies, other than the obvious when it is part of a set and there is 3 tapes making up a sequence of 1,2 and 3.
Registry entry is required to prevent job from timing out (default is 60s which is too slow for our system apparently)
Tape backup jobs will copy ALL files that it thinks are not on a tape the first time, or any time it is run. (Tech Support tells me I can clone a job to prevent this from happening, but this is just nuts.)
Tape Libraries Discovery jobs will start and hang if a multi-tape erase job is running. It shows a start time of two weeks prior???
The option to put multiple jobs on the same tape or span all jobs over a set of tapes should be offered.

The only way now is to save the report in .xlsx and filter offline tapes in the column. Would you like to have an option in the report parameters?
Thanks for the feedback!
Mediaset is consider as expired not after some job is done, but after preset number of days. We are notifying that those tapes protection period is expired.

1) with the other tapes, but only Online
2) with the expired tapes (as they are not offline).
Not sure if reports could be adjusted by us?
The Excel might be another solution when exporting it to a file, I thought about that to automate it this way, if there is no other solution. So I guess that would work too. Will have to check out the contents of the excel.
futureweb wrote:Bringing expired back should work as is. But the other way - we just named the Media Set accordingly, so we know where it has to go (additionally placing it into a vault, which is not visible on this report)
but there is no sign that it could be removed savely. (We know usually it's save to remove, as we said, do a new media set once a day. But if there was any delay, it might be it's not offsite ready.
Hope you got what I mean?
