Media Manager status code 92
Message: cannot delete assigned volume
Explanation: A delete request was made to a volume, and the volume is currently
assigned.
¦ Examine command output, debug logs, and system logs for a more detailed
message on the error.
See “Setting debug logging to a higher level” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
¦ Assigned volumes cannot be deleted. If no worthwhile data is on the volume,
unassign the media by using the appropriate application interface (which is

Media Manager status code 93

Explanation: Arequest was made to assign a volume, and the volume was already
assigned.
¦ Examine command output, debug logs, and system logs for a more detailed
message on the error.
See “Setting debug logging to a higher level” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
¦ Do not try to manually assign any volumes that are already assigned, because
it is not valid except for one condition: you can assign volumes for NetBackup
catalog backups if the volume is already assigned for NetBackup catalog
backups. Always use barcodes that are unique in the six least significant
characters, across all media in all robots. Or use media ID generation rules to
ensure that unique media IDs are generated in a robot inventory update.

Media Manager status code 94
Message: volume is not in specified pool
Explanation: A request was made to assign a volume from a specified volume
pool. The volume was in a different volume pool.
¦ Examine command output, debug logs, and system logs for a more detailed
message on the error.
See “Setting debug logging to a higher level” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
¦ When you assign volumes manually, specify the volume pool that is associated
with the volume. Always use barcodes that are unique in the six least significant
characters, across all media in all robots. Or use media ID generation rules to
ensure that unique media IDs are generated in a robot inventory update.

Media Manager status code 95
Message: media ID is not the specified media type
Explanation: A request was made to assign or add a volume of a specified media
type. The volume or physically similar volumes have a different media type.
¦ Examine command output, debug logs, and system logs for a more detailed
message on the error.
See “Setting debug logging to a higher level” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
¦ When you use robot inventory update to make changes to the volume
configuration, do the following: ensure that all volumes of the same physical
cartridge type (for example, 3590J in TLH robots) map to a single media type
such as HCART. This check ensures that all media in the robotic library can
be mounted on drives with a compatible drive type.
¦ When you assign volumes manually, specify the media type that is associated
with the volume. Always use bar codes that are unique with respect to the six
least significant characters, across all media in all robots. Or use media ID
generation rules to ensure that unique media IDs are generated when you use
robot inventory update.
