Hi

According to the information you have supplied, it looks like this is the 
only database backup that you have. Is this correct?

There can be multiple reasons to why you cannot delete a database backup 
volume from the volume history:

1. The database is the last database backup that you have(including 
incrementals)

2. The database is the last database within the specific device class. TSM 
will not allow you to delete the last database backup, despite the fact 
that you might have other database backups bound to other device classes.

Best Regards

Daniel Sparrman

Evironment:

Server OS: Windows 2000
TSM ver: 5.1.7.0

I have an old tape that was used for a database backup once, that I want 
to
make a scratch tape of, but it wont work. Can anyone help me with this?
There is no problem if I do it on another tape.

q libvol
LB6            194ABCL1      Private                   Data        4,130
LB6            195ABCL1      Private                   Data        4,113
LB6            196ABCL1      Private                   Data        4,148

LB6            470AALL1      Private                   Data        4,163

update libvol lb6 197ABCL1 status=scratch
ANR8443E UPDATE LIBVOLUME: Volume 197ABCL1 in library LB6 cannot be
assigned a status of SCRATCH.
