I had a remote session with Veeam support. The following way I have to go:

Code: Select all
PS C:\> $lib = Get-VBRTapeLibrary
PS C:\> Start-VBRTapeInventory -Library $lib

This performs a really tape inventory and the result is I could see the current status of the tape drive --> "tape "Loaded" :D

Yep, in case of standalone drive, you can get the tape drive, using Get-VBRTapeLibrary commandlet, and, then, issue inventory command to it. This must have slipped out of my attention.

Anyway, glad to hear that you're up and running now.
