Mounting or Pre-mounting a storage volume


Note: You will NOT use the front panel buttons on the library for this procedure.

To mount a volume set (import a media into the storage library), or pre-mount media for formatting right-click on the Server node and select Mount Volume Set option:




      The following display appears. You will now select the Library that you want to mount the Volume/Volume Set into.




      Leave the wildcard Volume Set name "*". InveStore will automatically READ the volumes inserted.

      The mail-slot of the library will automatically open. Place the media into the mail-slot of the library.


      Select the Mount button. You will then be prompted to place the storage media into the mail-slot of the library:




InveStore will issue the necessary robotic commands to move the media for mounting. An indicator screen will provide a status of the Mount process:





You will be prompted for additional members of a volume set, if applicable. Place these in the mail slot one at a time as prompted and then select the Ok button.


Important Note: When mounting multi-member volume sets with more than 2 surfaces, you must first complete the mounting of all members of that volume set, before attempting to start a new mount process for a separate volume set.
