I have a backup application (BAB v9.01) that I use in conjunction with my
HSTC. The HSTC is configured as 3 Ultrium-td1 tape drives. I have a SDLT1
tape drive attached to the HSTC. I have no problem running my backup to the
HSTC virtual tape drives. I have no problem copying the HSTC virtual tape
to the physical SDLT1 tape drive. The problem is, when I take the tape
created by the copy (VT to physical) and try to read that tape on another
tape drive, the backup/restore application sees it as an "unknown tape" and
will not process it. What preliminary steps do I need to take to make sure
that the created tape will have a label? or whatever is necessary to make
the tape readable by another tape drive?
