Re: Networker 7.4 media tracking

I agree with Bobby on the ssretent here...

By the way, one thing I noticed with volaccess value is that whenever you re-label your volume to another pool, the value will change to the first time you re-labeled that volume to the new pool. So, I don't think that Networker does keep a record when a volume was really first used on your system. Again, this is how what I have observed so far on our system, so please correct me if this is incorrect.

Re: Networker 7.4 media tracking

Roose, I think you're getting a little mixed up in the column definitions:

olabel - when the volume was labelled for the first time

labeled - the most recent time the volume was labelled (or re-labelled)

volaccess - last time volume was accessed for read or write

It is the olabel value that shouldn't change.  I haven't tested this though. Are you seeing this value changing?

Re: Networker 7.4 media tracking

Bobby, you're correct... I mistaken it with the time that we were getting the "Duplicate volume" error and Networker was not able to automatically recycle the volumes. We had to delete the index and media entry for those affected volumes, thus when we relabel the tapes, the olabel value was changed. But if relabeling only, olabel stays.
