93 error media manager found wrong tape in drive / How to reuse or recycle VERITAS NetBackup database catalog tapes for normal backups

June 1, 2011 | In: Veritas NetBackup

The tape which stored the Netbackup database cannot be directly erased or expired.

If you try to expire the tape using the following command, it outputs with error.

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpexpdate -ev <tape id> -d0

To reuse the tape, you need to relabel it. You can find the procedures below.

First get the information about the tape.

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -m <media-id>

Now de-assign id.

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -deassignbyid <media id> <soure volume pool number> 1

source volume pool number information can be obtained from previous command.

Now relabel Media.

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bplabel -ev <media-id> -d hcart2 -p <volumepoolname>

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bplabel -ev <media-id> -d <mediatype> -p <volumepoolname>

If you enter wrong media type, you will not be able to proceed. To find the media type, Go to Media and Device Management > Media > Volume Pool  > Select the volume pool to find the media. Here you can find the “Media type” too.
