Moving a volume from one Library to another

 

When moving a volume that is currently mounted in one library, into a different library on the same server system, we recommend using a specific procedure to insure the correct tracking of the volume in its new location.

 

This process typically involves using the InveStore console to Unmount the volume in question from the first library library, and then Mounting the same volume using the InveStore console, into the second library library.

 

InveStore uses directory cache information that is stored on the local Windows server hard drive to track location of the volume as well as its directory tree contents.

 

When Unmounting the volume from the first library library, select the "delete cache" option, so that InveStore removes its cache reference for this volume, and its associations with the first library.

 

That way when the volume is mounted again in the second library, new cache is created that reflects the new location.
