Hate to respond to my own post. I hit send too soon.

It looks like the primary criteria may be the expiration date. The tapes
which have been expired the longest will be selected first.

It is definitely not searching alphabetically as the primary criteria..

Yesterday morning I had tapes 49 to 62 as expired tapes in the library.
There were others with numbers lower & higher also expired.

Between that report and now, BRMS chose to use 49, 52, 55, 56, 227, 228 &
229.

Hence my curiosity about what the selection criteria is.

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

Br,

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

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.


Thanks,

Gord
