Viewing robotic library configuration properties

Through the Configuration tab of a robotic library's properties dialog box, you can enable start-up initialization for the robotic library. You also can enable bar code rules and specify slot base numbering.

To view configuration properties of a robotic library

  1. On the navigation bar, click Devices.

  2. Expand the server icon in the tree view, and then click Robotic Libraries.

  3. Select the robotic library.

  4. In the task pane, under General Tasks, click Properties.

  5. On the Library Properties dialog box, click Configuration.

    The Configuration tab provides the following information:

    Enable startup initialization

    Select this option to have Backup Exec initialize the robotic library when Backup Exec is started. Depending upon the robotic library, initialization can include reading all bar code labels on media.

    Enable bar code rules

    Select this check box to enable bar code rules.

    See Bar code rules in mixed media libraries.

    Slot base

    Depicts the starting slot. Some robotic libraries have slots starting at "0"; others start at "1". If your robotic library uses a zero-based slot configuration you can reassign how the slots are displayed by typing the appropriate number in the Slot Base field.
