    Default How to find associated volumes

    Hi,

    I am planning to run an audit over all of our offline volumes. I'd would like to that in small batches rather than importing a lot of offline volumes at once into the library. The problem is that the audit terminates if the respective volume contains a file which spans over more than one volume and the consecutive volume is not present in the library: ANR2456E AUDIT VOLUME: Unable to access associated volume xyz - access mode is set to "offsite".

    Is there a way to find out which volumes are associated with a given one?

    Thanks, Georg.

    I don't completely follow what you want to do.

    Audit does not work if the tape IS NOT physically in the library.

    If you want to find out what a volume holds by node name, use a select command like:

    SELECT DISTINCT node_name, volume_name, stgpool_name FROM volumeusage WHERE volume_name='<volume_name>'

    Thanks for your reply... I am moving the offsite volumes into the library in batches of 10 volumes or so and bring them online. Then I start auditing them. But if one of the volumes contains files which span to another volume which is still offline the process terminates. So I need to find out the associated volumes in order to bring them online as well.

    I could use the skippartial=yes option but I think in that case the partial files wouldn't be checked.

    Georg.
