Thread: Which tape drive will be selected given a choice?

  1. Which tape drive will be selected given a choice?



    Just trying to figure out how netbackup 5.1 selects a tape drive given a
    choice of a dozen all in the same storage unit.

    This is with L180. Doesnt seem to be based on nearest to tape chosen, nor
    least used drive, nor alphabetical order.

    Anyone care to shed any light?

    And is it different in v6/ W SL500 do you know?

    Thanks in advance,Jim

    Answer from 'the other' forum: tis in the Media Manager admin guide and all
    things being equal it's tldd's (say) viewpoint of which drive was used least
    recently.
    Bounce the daemon, all times are reset.
