Removing Tapes from Catalog

If you do not want to store information about a tape and contents on this tape in Veeam Backup & Replication database, you can remove the tape from the catalog. For example, you can perform removal from catalog if a physical tape no longer exists, and the tape should no longer be displayed among media in the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

You can remove only tapes that are offline.

To remove one or more tapes from the catalog:

  1. Open the Tape Infrastructure view.
  2. Navigate to the list of tapes either under the Media Pools or under the Libraries > LibraryName node > Media > Offline.
  3. Select offline tapes you want to remove from the catalog and click Remove from Catalog on the ribbon. Alternatively, you can right-click selected tapes and choose Remove from Catalog from the shortcut menu.
  4. In the opened dialog box, click Yes to confirm removal.

Removing Tapes from CatalogImportant!

You cannot remove protected tapes from the catalog. To remove such tapes, you need to switch the protection off first.
