Hi Gord,
BRMS will take media / tape that are available in pool and it will search
alphabetically. It will look @ the expired media parm. Then it will use the
media for backup. You can take a look @ wrkmedbrm to chek on all media or
you can check on wrkclsbrm for specific pools...
Hope that helps

We have recently converted to using BRMS. We have a pool of 300 LTO6

I have a question on how BRMS determines which tape to write to next. We
have just started to use tapes for the 3rd time. Yet I have several tapes
which have only been used once. They are in the library and are expired.
They are also physically in the library.

What criteria does BRMS use to pick the next tape? What file might I run a
query over to display by number of uses. I've been using the PRTMEDBRM
reports but they don't allow me to resequence.

No problems, I'm just curious.
