Excluding Media Picked for Refresh

You can exclude a media that was previously picked for refresh operation.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Storage Resources > Libraries > Tape Library > Media By Location > Media In Library.
  2. In the Media In Library window displayed in the right-pane, select the media.
  3. Right-click the media, point to Refresh and then click Unpick and Prevent for Refresh.
    A warning message is displayed confirming that the refresh operation will exclude the media for refresh. Click Yes.
  4. The media is unselected and will not be refreshed.

    You cannot exclude a media when the media refresh job is running. You must first stop the media refresh operation and then exclude the media to prevent refresh. As a result, all the data consolidation operations performed on the new media is reverted.
