Delete orphaned volumes from volhist

  • Identify “old” owner:
    select * from volhistory where volume_name='<NAME>'
  • Delete volhistory entry by giving the name of the volume:
    del volhist type=remote volume=<NAME> tod=+0 force=yes
  • remove all tapes with a certain patter from volhistory using a bash shell on the libman' config folder,
    e.g. remove all LTO5 tapes on a LibMan called lm101:
      for i in $(grep "Volume Name" volhist.dat | grep "L5" | cut -f 2 -d '"')
      do 
        echo "lm101: del volhist type=remote volume="$i" tod=+0 force=yes"
      done
      lm101: del volhist type=remote volume=HU2194L5 tod=+0 force=yes
      lm101: del volhist type=remote volume=HU2195L5 tod=+0 force=yes
      lm101: del volhist type=remote volume=HU2135L5 tod=+0 force=yes
      lm101: del volhist type=remote volume=HU2138L5 tod=+0 force=yes
