    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

Basics – Setting cleaning tape usage/registering a cleaning tape

Posted by Preston on 2009-03-09

A commonly asked question is “how do I register a cleaning cartridge?” If NetWorker is managing your cleaning, it’s typically a case of just telling NetWorker how many cleaning uses are left in the nominated slot(s) for cleaning.

I always prefer to do it from the command line. From there, the command is:

# nsrjb -U x -S y

Where:

  • x is the number of uses of the cleaning cartridge left (e.g., 20)
  • y is the slot number of the cleaning cartridge you want to “register”.
