Deconfiguring a Library

Deconfiguring a library deletes the library as a storage target and also disables software communications between the MediaAgent and the device.

Note that the de-configure operation will fail in the following situations:

  • If there are jobs currently running in the library. If necessary, wait for the jobs to complete or kill the jobs in the library.
  • If media is mounted in the drives. If media is mounted, Unload the Media, before de-configuring the library.


  1. From the navigation pane, click Storage Targets.
  2. Click the Actions button action_button and click Deconfigure.
  3. Click Yes in the Confirm delete prompt.


The library will be deleted and an informational event will be logged in the Events page.
