vmchange  will let you change the media type, the volume group and even the 
barcode on active tapes.  There are more options, but those are the only ones I 
have actually done.

You cannot make any change to a tape if it has valid images on it.

 

So if you do not want to expire the tapes, change one of your drives to the 
same media type as the tapes you want to restore from.

Our environment, NBU 6.5.4 running on HP-UX 11-31 with a Data Domain VTL and 
MSL6060 tape library.  I need to change the Media Type on a few tapes that are 
currently HCART to HCART2 but am having trouble.  We have changed tape 
libraries since these tapes were created, the tape library is now HCART2 and 
our vtl is HCART.  I tried to set it to HCART2 when I injected them into the 
library but that didn’t do anything and they injected as HCART.  I tried to 
delete the tapes but get a “cannot delete assigned volume 000746. Cannot delete 
assigned media” message.  Do I have to expire the tapes, delete them and then 
import them to change the media type or is there an easier way.  The data on 
the tapes is good and I do need to recover files from them.

Thanks in advance…..
