    If these are new tapes, you need you need label them first using the label libv command.

    If they have data on them, make sure you are checking them in as private.

    When a new library is created in TSM, an audit will not create an inventory. The question I had was if the tapes were brand new or were used by TSM before. Try running the following:



    checkin libv <libname> search=yes status=scr checkl=bar



    If that is successful , run :



    checkin libv <libname> search=yes status=pri checkl=bar



    If these are band new tapes:



    label libv <libname> search=yes checkin=scr labels=bar



    Let me know what the errors are if this does not work.
