Title:  How to configure cleaning slots in CA ARCserve Backup 12.0?

Description:

This document provides the instructions on designating specific slots as cleaning slots using one of the following options:

  • Clean By slot
  • Clean by Barcode

Solution:

  1. Open the CA ARCserve Backup Manager, Go to Quick Start->Administration->Device.

  2. In the Device Manager window, browse to the library.

    Right click the library and select Library Properties from the pop-up menu.

    The Library Properties dialog opens.

    Click the Cleaning tab.

    Modify the following Cleaning options as required for your library:

    • Clean by slot

      This option lets you designate specific slots as cleaning slots. You can specify one or more cleaning slots and they do not need to be in a successive order.

    • Clean by Barcode

      This option lets you specify cleaning slots for your library based on a specific bar code or a range of bar codes using a prefix and a wildcard character. In the Clean Bar Code Prefixes field, enter the prefixes of your bar coded cleaning tapes.

      Specify the bar code prefixes into the Clean Barcode Prefix(s) field as illustrated:

      Figure 2

      Note: The asterisk is a wildcard character.

      Click OK.

      The cleaning slots are set based on their bar code prefix.

      Examples:
      • The bar code on your cleaning tape is CLN123. In the Clean Barcode Prefix(s) field, specify CLN123.
      • There are several cleaning tapes in your library. The bar code prefix for the cleaning tapes is ABC. In the Clean Barcode Prefix(s) field, specify ABC*.
      • There are several cleaning tapes in your library. The cleaning tapes' bar code prefixes are ABC, CLN1, and MX. In the Clean Barcode Prefix(s) field, specify ABC*; CLN1*; MX*.

    • Automatic tape cleaning

      This option lets you direct CA ARCserve Backup to manage your tape cleaning tasks automatically. When you enable this option you must specify the number of hours that must elapse between cleaning tasks.

  3. Click OK.

    The cleaning slots are successfully configured.
