Use this dialog box to assign the media group used by a storage policy copy to a different MediaAgent, library, master drive pool, drive pool or scratch pool within the CommCell. A migrated media group is still accessed by the same storage policy copy.

Library

The library in which you want to store the media.

  • If you are migrating media between drive pools within one library, this should be the same as the library in which the media are currently stored.
  • If you are migrating media between libraries, this should be different from the library in which the media are currently stored.

MediaAgent

For disk media, the MediaAgent that is to control operations involving this media group.

Master Drive Pool

For tape media, the master drive pool that you want to associate with the storage policy copy (that is, the master drive pool that contains the drive pool whose drives will read from and write to the migrated media.)

Drive Pool

For tape media, the drive pool that you want to associate with the storage policy copy (i.e., the drive pool whose drives will read from and write to the migrated media). This cannot be the same as the drive pool currently associated with the storage policy copy.

Scratch Pool

For tape media, the spare media repository from which you want the copy to obtain fresh media.
