Hi!

I would like to check in some tapes what are containing important datas what i would like to use.

Will tsm server bring this tapes back to the appropriate state and pools after this command?

checkin libvol ts3500 1000l4 search=bulk checklabel=yes

The tapes are still in TSM DB in unavailable status.

Thank you!

If the status is unavailable then TSM thinks there's something wrong with this tape.

Is is a DR tape or a data tape? If it's a DR tape and it's out of the library I'd expect the status to be VAULT and if it's a data tape (that should be in the library) I'd expect the status to be private.

The tape is probably "UNAVAILABLE" because it's....ahem....unavailable.

CHECKIN LIBV TS3500 SEARCH=B status=private checkl=b waittime=0

UPD VOL 1000l4 acc=reado (if you just want to read it)
- or -

UPD VOL 1000l4 acc=readw (if you want to write to it, too)

This is data tape. I set it unavailable when i took it out from the active pool. I dont have enough free slot and in this case i have to change tapes.
I will change the status to RW.

Will this command chek all of IO(BULK)slot in the library and will check in all of tapes what are in IO?
If i use vollist parameter will it check in only that tapes what i enumerate?

example=
CHECKIN LIBV TS3500 SEARCH=B status=private checkl=b vollist=1000l4,1001l4 waittime=0
