One free pool for several tape libraries?

Jump to solution
Hi,

I use free pool concept for my tape library. Now I add one more library using the same media type.

Question. Can DP5.5 handle the same free pool for different libraries, i.e. will Omniback seek for a free pool tape that is located in the correct library?

Thanks and points in advance!

BR,

Hi,

I am not sure about DP 5.5 but in previous releases, there was only one Free Pool for each media type so all librarys must use the same Free Pool.

DP uses the Free Pool medias, located in the library before requsting for a media outside the library.

We have a such configuration in our enviroment (two librarys using the same media pool).

Hi Mihails,
DP55 use only one free pool for same media type. It use free media from appropriate library. In DP6 you will can use more free pools.
