[Veritas-bu] migrate tapes to new library?
If you want to move the database information from one media server to
another, then you need to
bpmedia -movedb -ev media_id -newserver hostname -oldserver hostname
That should do it for you.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] migrate tapes to new library?
We have moved one of our tape libraries to a
another media server. This was done by creating
a new library on the other media server which
now has three libraries. The library had 900+
tapes assigned to it before moving.
Now I need to restore a database from a couple
of the tapes that are assigned to the old library
definition. How do I take these tapes and re-assign
them to the new library without losing the data
or having to import the tapes (as that takes
~8hrs per tape)?
