HSM: Change Barcode Settings to Comply With STA (Doc ID 2562193.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) and StorageTek QFS Software - Version 6.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


To prevent Oracle HSM catalog issues with direct attached libraries (non-acsls) when changing the Library barcode setting.

The customer is attempting to change their library barcode settings to comply with STA Installation procedure for SL500 and SL150 libraries. This requires trimming the barcodes to 6 characters.
These libraries require the barcode setting to remove the last 2 characters (the media type) from the barcode for STA.

However, this can cause the Oracle HSM to create 'duplicate' tapes in the catalog which will prevent archiving and staging from occurring.
