Oracle DIVArchive: How to Change the Set ID or Group for a Tape Already Used (Doc ID 2401203.1)

Last updated on APRIL 09, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle DIVArchive - Version 7.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The document describes the procedure to change the Set ID of a particular Tape already assigned to a Group.

Group is a logical name for the storage of DIVArchive objects. Each group is assigned a Set ID of tapes to draw upon. Each group can only be assigned one Set ID, but several groups can share the same Set ID.

A group can only be removed when it no longer contains any DIVArchive objects.

Additional Set IDs for the Unused Tape Sets frame are only available after they are first created in a group. Tapes that must not be used by DIVArchive must be configured with a Set ID of 99.

When new tapes are inserted (using Insert Tape from the Control GUI) they are automatically assigned the default Set ID of 1.

If the tapes you inserted belong to a different set (for example, multiple Set ID's have been used to differentiate media types in mixed drive environments) they must be manually updated with the correct Set ID in the Configuration Utility.
