Sometimes we may hit the issue when we introduce a new tape library or a combination of different tape types to the tape Library.
Therefore you’ll have to key in the line below from command prompt.
For DPM 2010
osql -E -S localhost\MSDPM2010 -d DPMDB -Q "UPDATE tbl_MM_ArchiveMedia SET IsSuspect = 0"
For DPM 2007
osql -E -S localhost\MS$DPM2007$ -d DPMDB -Q "UPDATE tbl_MM_ArchiveMedia SET IsSuspect = 0"
Then do a refresh and rescan in the Tape Inventory from the DPM 2010 console. This should free up the tape and mark it as : “Free Tape”
Thank you and hope it helps you.
