tape formatting - specify host

tape formatting - specify host

0 Votes

When formatting a tape, Data Protector 10.10 chooses a host to handle the formatting, more-or-less arbitrarily.  This could be a problem if that host is unavailable or otherwise messed up.  I would like to be able to specify which host to use.

Hello @Lenny S

DP use the host configured on the device used to format the tape. Is expected that device is properly configured and working.
