Hello,

we would like to decommission a library manager and the logical library. We copied all data from affected TSM Servers to a new logical libray. But when I do a "query libvolume" on the old library manager (TSM20) I still found private tapes that belong to the library manager?


TSM20> query libvolume

Library NameVolume NameStatusOwnerLast UseHome ElementDevice Type
JAGUARCJC0000PrivateTSM201,0253592
JAGUARCJC0001PrivateTSM201,0263592
...

Why has a library manger private tapes?


Thank you for your help!

Best regards
Oliver

What happens, if you execute
"delete volhist todate=today type=remote vol=JC0000 force=yes"
"update libvol JAGUARC JC0000 status=scratch"
