Monitoring ARCserve Tapes and Devices

Home  Previous  Next

CA ARCserve Backup for PATROL is able to monitor the Tape drives and media to a limited extent on the ARCserve Backup Server machine. These devices may be viewed  in the ARC_DEVICES icon under the CA ARCserve Backup icon. Each Tape Drive discovered has an entry specifying ARCserve’s designated ID number. Under the TapeDrive instance are the ARC_MEDIA instances.

The KM will display the label of the media currently installed in the selected Tape Drive. When a tape is not present in the Tape Drive, an icon from ARC_MEDIA is displayed indicating the lack of a tape or blank label. This icon is in the ALARM state and may be manually cleared using the menu “To Clear Tape Alarms”.
