The following are examples of the type of information received.TLM media typeTLM volume ID3480A002503590J03123DECDLTDLT0018MMMM12004MMNN0402UNKNOWN002455■NetBackup translates the volsers directly into media IDs and barcodes. In theprevious table, volser A00250 becomes media ID A00250, and the barcode forthat media ID is also A00250.■If the operation does not require updating the volume configuration, NetBackupuses the media type defaults for TLM robots when it creates an inventoryreport.■If the operation requires a volume configuration update, NetBackup maps theTLM media types to the default NetBackup media typesInformation about the default media type mappings and how to change themis available.

IBM Automated TapeLibrary (AML)This chapter includes the following topics:■About IBM Automated Tape Library■Sample TLH configurations■Media requests for a TLH robot■Configuring robotic control■Configuring TLH drives■Cleaning drives■Adding tapes to TLH robots■Removing tapes from TLH robots■Robot inventory operations on TLH robotsAbout IBM Automated Tape LibraryApplies only to NetBackup Enterprise Server.The IBM Automated Tape Library (ATL) is NetBackup robot type Tape LibraryHalf-inch (TLH). ATL robots include the IBM Magstar 3494 Tape Library.TLH robots are API robots (a NetBackup robot category in which the robot managesits own media).Support for these devices is different than for other types of robots. This chapterprovides an overview of those differences.9Chapter
Sample TLH configurationsThe following sections show example ATL configurations and explain their majorcomponents.UNIX system example configurationsThe UNIX TLH examples include the following:■Two possible ATL configurations, as follows:■The robotic control host communicates directly to robotSeeFigure 9-1on page 129.■Robotic control and robot connection on separate hosts.SeeFigure 9-2on page 130.■An explanation of the major components in those configurations.SeeTable 9-1on page 131.IBM Automated Tape Library (AML)Sample TLH configurations128
