Creating a VTL type container

To create a virtual tape library (VTL) type container, complete the following steps.

1.
On the left navigation menu, select Containers, and then select the storage group for which you want to create a container. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
The Add Container pane is displayed.
3.
For Storage Group, select the storage group to which you want to add this container. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
4.
For Access Protocol, select Virtual Tape Library (VTL).
5.
For Container Name, type the name of the container.
6.
Click Next.
8.
For Tape Size, select the size of the tapes for your tape library from one of the following options.
9.
For VTL Access Protocol, select one of the following options.
FC. Note: This protocol is only available for the DR4300 or DR6300 systems.
No Access. Note: Select this option if you are not ready to select a protocol.
10.
For Access Control, do one of the following:
11.
If you selected NDMP as the access protocol, for Marker Type, select the appropriate marker that supports your DMA from one of the following options.
None — Disables marker detection for the container.
Unix Dump — Supports the Amanda marker, among others.
12.
If you selected iSCSI as the access protocol, for Marker Type, select the appropriate marker that supports your DMA from one of the following options.
None — Disables marker detection for the container.
Auto — Automatically detects CommVault, Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), ARCserve, and HP Data Protector marker types. In addition, select this option if you need to support EMC Networker 2.0.
ARCserve—Supports the ARCserve marker.
BridgeHead — Supports the BridgeHead HDM marker.
CommVault—Supports the CommVault marker.
HP DataProtector—Supports the HP Data Protector marker.
Networker — Supports EMC Networker 3.0. If you need to support EMC Networker 2.0, select Auto.
TSM—Supports the TSM marker.
Unix Dump — Supports the Amanda marker, among others.
13.
Click Next.

Click Save.

You can add additional tapes to the library after container creation by editing the container in the GUI or by using the CLI command:

vtl --update_carts –-name <name> --add --no_of_tapes <number>

For Fibre Channel, after a VTL is created with the default of 10 tape drives, you can add or delete drives in the library by using the following CLI command:

Viewing VTL tape information

Once you have created a virtual tape library (VTL) type container, you can view the detailed tape information of the VTL. This includes information about the vendor and model information for medium changer and tape drives. To view VTL information, complete the following steps.

Editing container settings

To modify the settings of an existing container, complete the following steps:

1.
On the left navigation menu, click Containers, and then select the storage group that contains the container you want to modify. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
The Edit Container pane is displayed.

Deleting a container

To delete an existing container that contains data, complete the following steps.

1.
On the left navigation menu, click Containers, and then select the storage group that contains the container you want to delete. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
