Migrating a Tape Library

If you have a tape library, the library should be connected to the new MediaAgent.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the appropriate drivers for the devices are loaded and that the operating system is able to identify the devices. For more information, see Driver Configurations.

Detect the devices and reconfigure the library.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand to Storage Resources.
  2. Right-click Libraries, and then click Add > Tape Library.
  3. In the Add Tape Library dialog box, perform the following:

    2. Click Scan Hardware.

      The tape library that is associated with the selected MediaAgent is detected and appears as Not configured.

    3. Right-click the detected library, and then click Configure.

      A message appears that tells you that the library was configured successfully.

    4. Click OK.

      The new tape library is now configured.

  4. Click OK.

    The tape library appears under Libraries.
