Barcode Sticker overwrite by mistake
i accidentally used same serial no. of barcode label for new tapes which was used for older backup. means I have two LTO tapes with same barcode. will be I able to restore the data from the both the tapes of should I change the barcode only for new tapes and it will ok or I will lost previous data
That will make some confusion in DP side. When it will try to search for TAPE01 will see the last tape read with that barcode.
I will recommend to replace the barcode of the newer tapes, then you can rescan the old and the new so each will be different. If you have data already backed up in the new, just do an import catalog of the tape.
