Tape Media Move Script

A few times I have had partners/customers confused as to why their jobs failed when needing media and they have put media in the library. Well, the new media is in the Unrecognized Pool and needs to be moved. I created a Powershell script that can be used to automate this process to hopefully help this situation. https://github.com/VeeamHub/powershell/tree/master/BR-TapeMedia-FreePool

Yes, the Veeam tape handling is rather basic in some parts. The same rhing can happen when many expired tapes are located in a media pool and another pool needs some more tapes. Enough tapes in the library but none usable for this pool.

Thanks for sharing this.  I will test this out as we use Veeam with Tape for one of our services.
