Are the tapes still present inside the given library or they have been taken offline?

It's shown as offline media actually, meaning it looks like the corresponding tapes were written on January, 1st and then exported from library.

Or you're positive that these mediums are physically present inside the device?

Thanks.

Hi,

What happens when you inventory your tape library with the said media being loaded into slots?

What Dmitry meant is to inventory the whole library not particular tapes.

Or you say that even after inventory these medias are shown as offline? If so, kindly, open a ticket with our support team and let them confirm your environment.

Thanks.

Right-click on a particular media -> "Eject Tape". Otherwise, right-click on a drive -> "Eject". Thanks.

You're welcome. If you'd like to do that in automatic fashion, enable corresponding option in the job settings. Thanks.
