Keep Tapes from Being Checked In Accidentally

Greetings,

We have some tapes in the library that we don't want accidentally checked into Spectrum Protect. They're LTFS tapes that currently live in the TS4300 tape library and aren't part of Spectrum Protect's library volume. Is there a way to tell SP to NEVER use these tapes, in the case they were accidentally left in the IO slot and checked in by an unwitting sysadmin with the label bulk command?

You could decide to use tapes within a certain volume name range for the LTFS use case, and then separate that range into its own LOGICAL library.
