More than one mailslot in an MSL2024


More than one mailslot in an MSL2024

Hello all

Backup exec doesn't support moving tapes between slots in an autoloader, but it does support exporting to mail slot. Our backups can take two or three tapes depending on the method, but there is only one mailslot.

Is there a way to tell the autoloader that there is more than one mailslot. I understand that they won't be able to use the slot to remove all tapes, the will have to open the library but that's not an issue, I just need the tapes moved to the same specific slots each day.


 P.S. This thread has been moved from Tape > Tape Backup (Small and Medium Business)to Tape Libraries and Drives. -HP forum moderator

Correct, this library has a single mailslot only.

Hope this helps!
