Removing tape aliases

You can remove aliases by using the storage tape alias clear command when persistent aliases are no longer required for a tape drive or medium changer.

Step

  1. Remove an alias from a tape drive or medium changer by using the storage tape alias clear command.
    For more information about this command, see the man pages.
    Example
    The following command removes the aliases of all tape drives by specifying the scope of the alias clear operation to tape:
    cluster-01::>storage tape alias clear -node cluster-01 -clear-scope tape

After you finish

If you are performing a tape backup or restore operation using NDMP, then after you remove an alias from a tape drive or medium changer, you must assign a new alias name to the tape drive or medium changer to continue access to the tape device.
