    Dears,

    We're about to move into a new building and the society in charge of it asks me to empty the ts3310 from all his tapes.

    Is it a better way to do that stuff, I mean is it better to check out and check in (which is very time eater) or can I open the library, remove all tapes from the library and put them back after the move and perform an audit library... and the magic goes on?

    Thanks in advance

    Shutdown the TSM server - but backup the DB first - open the library, empty it out, move the library and load back the tapes. Start the TSM server and run an audit.

    Yep Moon-Buddy is correct, an audit works better.
