[Veritas-bu] bpmedialist vs. vmquery
It would seem like one or more mediaDB's on your
media servers have gone missing.
bpmedialist from memory queries the mediaDB's across
all the media servers over the network while vmquery
only queries the volDB which is centralised on the master.
Did you upgrade recently?
It would be nice if all media databases were centralised on
the master. We can only hope and see.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] bpmedialist vs. vmquery
first, thank you to everyone who has ever responded to one of my
questions. those responses have helped greatly.
an issue i am experiencing now is a mismatch between what tapes nbu
thinks are in our robot and what tapes media manager thinks are there.
for example, when i run a vmquery on our robot, it generates a list of
tapes. i then run some of those tape numbers through bpmedialist to see
what the status is, and i get a message saying the media id could not be
found in the nbu or mm db. since i got the tape number initially from
the mm db, i am confused. i believe i have many tapes in this
situation. is there any hope other than manually inventorying all the
