Tape GFS Configuration

In this article

    The report provides information about GFS Media Pools configuration and backup to tape jobs that write restore points to the Media Pools.

    • The GFS Media Pool section displays media pool configuration — how many tapes and tape libraries are assigned to the pool, and the number of free tapes.
    • The Media Pool Configuration table provides details on media sets, such as GFS retention period for every backup restore point, how many tapes are assigned to each media set, and where tapes must be exported when a job is finished.

    Click a number of assigned tapes to drill down to the list of tapes assigned to specific media sets.

    • The Job Writings to Media Pool section shows information about backup to tape jobs that write restore points to media pools and their backup schedule. If a job closes restore point creation from a media set highlighted with green, tape with this media set will be exported.
