What happens if not all tapes needed for a restore are in the tape library?
Posted by Andre Kuehnemund on 22 April 2015 10:37

Q:

If we run a restore for files that parks on 4 different tapes and only 3 of this tapes are in the library, does Archiware always restore the first 3 tapes then ask about the 4th one ? What is the protocol ?

A:

Using the above example, P5 would first restore the data from the tapes that are 'online' (i.e. in the tape library), then request the remaining tape(s) to be inserted into the tape library. Once the 'offline' tape(s) has/have been inserted into the library, P5 would restore the remaining files.
