    Hey all,


    hope you are well and stay well ?!?


    We went into the following szenario. Our Quantum Scalar I500 went into broken state. The library was partioned into 2 Librarys with 2 different commcells. The Library was fixed by quantum after 2 Weeks desaster... The forgot to make an Backup of the config. So the implemented the library and the partitons as the could see in the logs. The main problem is now the following:


    Before the library hoes into broken state we had extended barcodes enabeld. Library was repaired with normal barcode modus. Some auxcopy jobs runs and nobody saw the thing with the short barcodes. After few weeks we saw the problem because aged medias could not be overwritten. Over the library webinterface we set the checkbox for extended barcodes. 


    So now we had still the problem that aged media will not be overwritten. the flag overwrite tapes also when they configured to another commcell did not help. 


    Do you have an idear ?

    Hi Smithse

    Are we saying after successfully recovering the Tape Library, the Tape Library was detecting tapes with the short barcode and started to see only the Short Barcode?

    Only after enabling the "extended barcodes" the Tape Library is now recognizing the tapes as extended Barcode?

    You want to correct the tapes written with the short barcode with the extended barcode?

    Just want to get clarity to better understand the issue
