How to fix the tape pool?

Jump to solution
I use the backup structure 5 pools.
1 - DataBase
2 - Dario
3 - Free
4 - Monthly
5 - Semnal

I have a problem in the pool monthly. Format the tape. Sent monthly to the pool and after a while, the tape is moved to the free automatically. How do I keep the tape in the pool monthly?

help me please.

But this happens when you format it, this marks the tape as FREE, and DP move it.

When you do backup DP will use media from the normal pool and if there is no media available it will take the media from the free pool, that is part of the normal operation.

If this option is enabled, a deallocation of free media from a regular to a free pool takes place "automatically"

If you are using or implementing Free Pools you must understand this.

Uncheck the "Move free Media to free pool" this is normal if you have selected the "Use free pool" option.

Now I understand that the tape does not fix the pool to determine.
So to fix a free tape in a pool I clear the potion "Move free media to free pool.

Right?

Media are fixed to a pool unless the "move to free" option is enabled.
