Device Configuration

Use this dialog box to select the type of detection you wish to perform on your library and drives.

Do Exhaustive Detection Now

Choose this option to perform an exhaustive detection on your library and/or drives. During exhaustive detection a tape is mounted in the selected drives and the correct library to drive mapping is determined. We strongly recommended that you choose this option in the following situations:

  • When you configure a library and/or drives the first time
  • When a configured library encounters problems while mounting media
  • When you swap or replace drives
Configure Devices without Exhaustive Detection

Choose this option to detect the drives without performing an exhaustive detection. Select this option, only if you know that the existing library to drive mapping is accurate. e.g., if you have previously performed an exhaustive detection.
