Mounting Bar Code Media

 

During the startup sequence the InveStore software will determine if the storage library supports bar codes. If the storage library does support bar codes, and media with bar codes is present InveStore will mount the media into the system and store the bar code information for each disk surface in the individual surface properties screen (right-click on surface and select Properties).

 

Formatted Volume Sets that are mounted will also have bar code information associated with them. This will be displayed for the ROOT surface of the Volume Set. A Volume Set will only associate to the bar code of Member 0 of that Volume Set. This association of a bar code with the Volume Set record will occur during a mount or format operation.
