Re: Empty Slots are not visible

This may be an issue of the Data Protector INternal Database not being upgraded. If your library has a barcode reader, and you have Barcode support enabled on your configured library, do a Barcode scan

 

This may also be a problem with Library configuration.  In Properties for the library, click on the Repository tab.  Does this all the slots in the library?

 

If you see the slots configured correctly in the Library, but, not showing up when you single-click on Slots, try scanning a unseen slot from the command  line.  Pick a slot number, and identify the name of a configured drive. From teh command line run

 

         omnimm -repository_update "[drive_name]" -slot #        Do not include teh [   ] marks

 

where "[drive_name]" is that of a configured device, and it should be surrounded by " marks, and # is the slot number

 

Finally, on the system controlling the robotics, at the command line, run

 

      devbra -dev

 

which should show in the "Exch" section, how many slots are seen on this library

In the library settings, go to the Repository tab.  If there are no slots configured, enter 1-650 in the text area and then click Add.  Apply the settings and then do another barcode scan.
