Hi,

 

if you cannot find the media with the barcode in your devices&media - DP has no information regarding the media. So in this case you need to import the media to get details on it.

Re: Tapes investigation

Hi,

 

if you run "omnimm -media_info <BARCODE of media> and do not recive "Medium not found" the media is known to DP, otherwise you need to import the media first.
