Tape Media Summary Report
Use Search to find a template, report or dashboard by name. Search is case insensitive, supports partial entries, and will display a list of potential matches.
As you enter the name in the Search field, up to 10 potential matches are displayed. If the template, report or dashboard is shown, you can select and run it directly from the match list. You can also click All Items in the match list to go directly to the Search Results.
StorageConsole provides different navigation options to slice and examine your collected data. You can explore the data by using the APTARE customizable report templates or by using parts of your IT infrastructure as entry points. The Inventory Navigator serves as a browser for your infrastructure by object type. See also Exploring Your Inventory.
Use the Reports tab to examine the StorageConsole catalog of templates, dashboards and reports - organized by products along with user-created, and system folders. This report is located here:

This report is applicable to only NetBackup, Networker, TSM, CommVault Simpana, and HP Data Protector.
Depending on your environment, this report listing can get rather long, so you may want to narrow the report’s scope. When you generate the report, you can limit the output using the following parameter choices:
Scope: Select specific hosts and/or host groups
Event Status: Select All Media, Media Inside Tape Library, or Media Outside Tape Library
Media Status: All, Expired, Available, In Use, or Full. Note that the Expired status is not a valid option for IBM TSM and HP Data Protector, as those vendors do not support this status for tapes.
When your Tape Media Summary report contains multiple listings, the sortable headings enable you to find the tape media you want quickly. Click on any of the table headings to sort the table by that heading in ascending order. Click the heading a second time to sort in descending order.
