About bar code rules

A bar code rule specifies criteria for assigning attributes to new robotic volumes. NetBackup assigns these attributes by using the bar code for the volume that the robotic library provides and your bar code rules.

In NetBackup, you choose whether to use bar code rules when you set up the robot inventory update operation. The bar code rules are stored on the EMM server.


NetBackup does not use bar code rules if a volume already uses a bar code.
