Customers in larger environments with hundreds of devices usually have large amount of Media stored in plenty different Media Pools. Due to some filter enhancements introduced in Data Protector 8.x the MFC GUI displays only 50 elements by default. As a result not all Media Pools are displayed in the tree view in Devices & Media which is highly confusing and adds a lot of additional steps to find the right information.
Please always display all Media Pools (remove the Items per page for Media Pools) OR make default values configurable by the user or in global. 50 is not a reasonable default value.
Existing Enhancement Requests:
QCCR2A51597 / Support for global parameter that defines default value of "Items per page"
QCCR2A66702 / GUI, pool depiction and "items per page"
QCCR2A52759 / "Items per page" in the Device List to not change back to default after restarting the GUI
Reduce the amount of time to find the desired information in the MFC GUI. Make Media Pool operations more intuitive.
