Re: Where exactly mhvtl stores data written on a tape?
By default, the media is created in the /opt/mhvtl/<barcode> directory.
copying the complete data from this dir will 'move' the media from one host to another. Note: There are a total of three files which make up the virtual media.
However, there is a configuration setting "Home directory:" in /etc/mhvtl/device.conf which will over-ride the default location (per library)
Library: 10 CHANNEL: 00 TARGET: 00 LUN: 00
Vendor identification: STK
Product identification: L700
