Schedule scan of a library

Status : Declined
over 2 years ago

In some environments the media changes constantly. So scan is needed, even format will be needed. 

A good idea could be add this option to schedule scans, barcode scan and formats. 

Rescan option option already exists, but will need an enhancement to be used in copy, replication and restores. 

Also, this option can offer the chance to perform operations before the backups start.

  • Hi ,

    Have you ever tried to use the "Rescan" option on the tape devices? It does exactly this before performing a backup. The only disadvantage is that "Rescan" does not work for Copy, Consolidation and Restore sessions, just for Backup. So before scheduling a rescan I would ask for enhancing CSM and RSM to perform the rescan if it has been configured for a device. What do you think? If you like it feel free to change your post. You have my vote.
