    Question EDL VTL TAPES how to update on TSM library

    I tried to move a few tapes from one EDL VTL library to another in the EMC disk library console. this was not a problem. then I needed to run an audit on the tsm library assocaited to the VTL library engine I received this message.

    ANR8883W The volume V03285L3 in slot 2450 is in the library LIB10 but not in the TSM's inventory database. Please either check in this volume or remove it from the library

    When trying checkin this volume (remember a virtual volume) it trys to load a phyiscal tape but since it is a VTL tape of course does not work.

    How do you check in a VTL tape through TSM so that it is in the TSM inventory database.

    Hi

    I don't think you can physically move a tape from one library to another, even if you only did this virtually.
    Better move data via TSM command to (one of) the storage pool(s) that reside on the second library.

    What checkin command did you use? search=no? that should do the trick for a tape already in the library.
    "Whats this button do?"
