Tape library management software
Hello all :)
Does anybody know of any free method/software that will allow us to manage a Sony AIT tape library (LIB-81)?
The tape library in question is redundant (it was replaced by a larger unit when we installed a SAN last year) and we want to use it to erase our remaining AIT tapes. However, we do not have a spare Symantec license knocking about and are hoping someone can recommend a technique or bit of freeware that will manage the tape library and allow us to batch-erase a set of tapes in one go.
I know NTBackup can erase the tapes for us, but we're struggling to find some software to control the tape loader - there are no front panel options to control which tape is loaded in the drive, so we can't actually access the tapes!
