Remove-VBRTapeMediaPool Important!

Removing media pools has the following restrictions:

  • You can only delete custom media pools; predefined media pools cannot be deleted.
  • You cannot delete a media pool that contains tapes. To be able to delete such a pool, first move tapes from this pool to other media pools.
  • You cannot delete media pools used by an existing backup/files to tape copy job. In case you definitely have to disable this pool, you should first modify the corresponding job to target another media pool.
