Hi Folks,

I have created additional logical library in TS3310. My requirement is to assign tape to this Logical library.

For Eg:

Two Logical Library A & B
Two TSM Server T1 and T2
T1 is mapped to A and T2 is mapped to B

I want to move scratch tape in Library A and insert in Library B

Steps Followed
Checkout tape from T1 server.
Checkin to tape to T2 server. Checkin is not happening.

Planning for an TSM upgrade. planning to do sanity testing for less downtime approach.

Seek your help to rectify the issues.

Regards,
Mohan

Checkin to tape to T2 server. Checkin is not happening.
Did you remove the tape from library A after the checkout?
Did you put the tape in the I/O slot before the checkin in library B?
Did you use search=bulk?

The answer the the above questions need to be yes for all. IF it is yes for all, then what errors are you getting in the activity log of server2?

Hi,
After checkout, tape was moved to IO slot. Ownership of the tape was seen as logical Library A.
I have removed tape from IO slot, inserted some courierr tapes that were meant for Libray A and TSM Server T1.
After few min placed a removed tape in IO slot and ownership was seen as Unassigned (Checked thru web console)
Checkin tape worked without any issue.
In q libvol the tape is seen as Scratch

Thanks Marclant for your suggestion
