Yes for that you are correct... I did not know that you already using it
not in order or you share the pool...
Thats why if you want to clarify it... You should share your configuration

I have pretty much confirmed that it is using the tapes in order of expiry
date first. If there is more than one tape with the same previous expiry
date, it will use the tapes in tape number order.

Hi Gord...
I used to watch the log of the brms when it runs... Back then I can
confirm
that it will search for the tapes in order... If its on in order we have
to
take alook at the medias properties...
Can you share your brms configuration? If thats okay... :D

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

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
