Tape feature request

Veeam Logoby tzmueller » Tue Jul 04, 2017 11:00 pm

is there anyway to add a feature to the tape media to allow the database to track how many times the tape was mounted, read/written to and possibly the first time the tape was used?

Also I would like to see a policy being able to automatically retire tapes when they reach a certain criteria based on the selection above.

We do not collect this sort of information. Instead, we rely on drive/library itself to instruct us when a tape gets retired or corrupted.

However, thank you for the request; highly appreciated.

Actually, we are working on something similar. Don’t forget to subscribe to v10 announcements :wink:
