Hi guys,

Any particular operation you would like to add to backup operator role?

So far the list looks like this:

Tape Inventory
Tape Export
Tape Eject
Tape Catalog
Inventory Library/SA Drive
Catalog Library/SA Drive
Rescan Library/SA Drive
Import Tapes
Eject from Drive

Sorry for the late answer!

I would give tape operator role complete access to all Features unter "tape infrastructure".
Or for example make two roles,
Tape Administrator --> complete acces to "tape infrastructure"
Tape Operator --> all roles you suggested above plus:

- move tapes to media pools
- erase tapes
- move to vault
- mark as free

Thanks!!

plandata_at,

Thanks. We are worried that Backup operator can accidentally erase the data while moving tapes. That’s why we've decided to enhance the existing Backup Operator’s permissions with the actions described above in upcoming release. In next version, we will add a Tape Operator role dedicated to tape operations only (including erase/move and mark as free). Make sense?

Any update on the addition of the tape operator role? This would be a very useful addition for allowing our support operations team to manage tapes.
Thanks!

No new product versions have been release since Dmitry's reply, so currently there are no updates to the discussed matter. Thanks.
