Good day, Anatoly.
OK.
I'll try.
When I add the tape drive device to the target by "Management Console",
I would like to know what tape device from multiple tape devices or libraries
was assigned. Serial number is ideal for identificating tape device, but I can see
only "name" and "f/w version" in "Description" column. What can you offer to identify
the tape device?
I hope, I didn't take away glory from Mutko :).

Thank you.

Hello olege,

Unfortunately, there is no option to identify the particular TL device in MS Device Manager.

Alternatively, I would recommend you to initially rename the device in your backup software ("Rename library" in Veeam B&R, for example). Using backup software you can also identify the device by checking tape barcodes (they will correspond to ones, assigned in StarWind).

Please let me know should you have any other questions.
