Transparent addition of licensed capacity
The addition of licensed capacity in the tape library is transparent to any host application.
With the Advanced Library Management System (ALMS), you can change the quantity of cartridges
accessible to all logical libraries by adding licensed capacity. The change is
transparent to each host application because the value in the
Maximum Number of
Cartridges field on the management GUI is not impacted by changes to
the quantity of storage slots. The increase in licensed capacity enables a higher number
of cartridges to be assigned upon insertion.
