Hi,

Library Inventory is to reconcile the actual volumes and the list of volumes produced by nsrjb. Each volume may be loaded  into a device and examined for a NetWorker label (depending on bar code settings and other factors). The internal list is then updated with the new information. After all volumes have been examined, the new list is compared to the NetWorker media database, and a message listing any volumes located in the jukebox but not in the database is produced.

While Reset Library is resetting the jukebox hardware (and the NetWorker database representing the jukebox) to a consistent state. The jukebox clears the transport and then unmounts and  unloads volumes from the drives to slots. An actual inventory is not performed.If the jukebox senses that the inventory is out-of-date, it prints an appropriate message.

Hope this clarifies when you need to run each of those features,
