MSL 5030 Command Line management

Is it possible to manage the loading and unloading of tapes from the command line rather than using OpenView Data Protector.

You can use the commands mc (media changer manipulation utility) or uma . Check the man pages for all the details.

mc is always present on HPUX where the command uma is installed with Data Protector.

You can move tapes from slot1 to slot2, load/unload a drive, ...

One remark. If you relocate tapes using the mc or uma command, you should perform an

'omnimm -repository_barcode_scan '

to update the DP database about the new location of the tapes. Or do a barcode scan from the DP GUI.

Else DP will still think that eg the tape is in slot 1 while you moved it eg to slot 7.
