Assigning tape drives and cartridges to a logical library
Each logical library requires at least one drive as a control path drive. Assign additional tape drives as needed to improve performance. Enable or disable control path drives on the Drives page.
Drives are assigned to logical libraries when the logical libraries are created. You can modify the drives that are assigned to a logical library on the Drives by Logical Library page.
Note: A tape drive can be used only by the logical library it is assigned to. Drives cannot be shared between logical libraries.
Cartridges are assigned to logical libraries based on the VOLSER range that is assigned to the logical library when it is created. You can modify what cartridges are assigned to a logical library by modifying the VOLSER range from the VOLSER Ranges by Logical Library page.
Note: Cleaning cartridges are shared between the logical libraries. You can view the cleaning cartridges on the Cartridges page.
