That will happen automatically with reclamation.

If they do not show in Q LIBV, they are not checked in. Try this:
Code:
audit library {library name} checklabel=barcode
The audit is just to make sure that TSM is aware of where each volume is in the library. Once the audit is complete, checkin volumes that are in the library, but not checked in:
Code:
checkin libvolume {library name} search=yes status=scratch
Once the above completed, do:
Code:
checkin libvolume {library name} search=yes status=private
Once both checkin processes have completed, recheck "q libv" for the volumes.

You can run HELP AUDIT LIBRARY for more details on what the command does. The short version, it ensure that TSM's tape inventory matches what is physically in the library as far as which tape is in which slot. So that when you do the checkins, you won't be missing any misplaced tapes if there are any.https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGSG7_7.1.3/srv.reference/r_cmd_library_audit.html
