Dear All,

Is there anyway to recover the Security credentials for ESL G3 Library. We were advised to factory reset the library by HPE, but this would lead to data loss.

Have anyone came across this situation and please share if there's a way out there to recover the same :(

Thanks much in advance!

Hi

I am not expert on HPE libraries.

Are your tapes encypted? And if so, who is doing the encryption?

Spectrum Protect
External Key Manager
Internal library settings

Hello Trident,

Sorry for the delay.. Yes, tapes are encrypted with external ESKM device (don't have security password for this too).

Many Thanks!

Hi,
If you still have access to tapes, you can maybe make a new library with unencrypted tapes, and migrate data over.
