JSI Tip 6574. Windows Server 2003 provides additional RSM commands.

In tip 3460 ยป How do I use the command line for Removable Storage, I described the syntax for the RSM commands in Windows 2000.

Windows Server 2003 has the following additional commands:


rsm erase /p\{g | f\}PhysicalMediaID \[/tTimeout\] \[/r\{normal | high | low | highest | lowest\}\] \[/b\]

Parameters

/pgPhysicalMediaID - Specifies the tape to erase, using the GUID. 

/pfPhysicalMediaID -  Specifies the tape to erase, using the friendly name. 

/tTimeout -  Specifies the command time-out, in milliseconds. The default time-out value is infinite. 

/r\{normal | high | low | highest | lowest\} - Optionally specifies the priority with which RSM is to perform
                                             the mount operation for the purposes of erasing the tape,
                                             with normal being the default. 

/b -  Hides the text on completion, for scripting purposes. 

/? - Displays help at the command prompt. 



rsm freemedia \{/p\{g | f\}PhysicalMediaID | /s\{g | f\}SlotID /l\{g | f\}ChangerID/LibraryID | /d\{g | f\}DriveID /l\{g | f\}ChangerID/library | /l\{g | f\}StandaloneLibraryID \[/b\] Parameters /pgPhysicalMediaID - Specifies the physical media to free, using the GUID. /pfPhysicalMediaID - Specifies the physical media to free, using the friendly name. /sgSlotID - Specifies the slot holding the media to free, using the GUID. /sfSlotID - Specifies the slot holding the media to free, using the friendly name. /lgLibraryID - Specifies the library containing the media to free (for a standalone drive), or the library containing the slot or drive from which to eject the media (for an automated library), using the GUID. If you are specifying an automated library, this switch must be used with the /s or /d switch. /lfLibraryID - Specifies the library containing the media to free (for a standalone drive), or the library containing the slot or drive from which to eject the media (for an automated library), using the friendly name. If you are specifying an automated library, this switch must be used with the /s or /d switch. /dgDriveID - Specifies the drive holding the media to free, using the GUID. /dfDriveID - Specifies the drive holding the media to free, using the friendly name. /b - Displays only the eject operation GUID, for scripting purposes. /? - Displays help at the command prompt. NOTES: You can specify the media to be freed in one of four ways: You can specify the physical media using either the physical media ID (PMID) or the physical media name. You can write a free media label on the media in a specified slot within a specified library. You can write a free media label on the media in a specified drive within a specified library. You can free the media in a standalone drive by specifying its library GUID or friendly name.
rsm inventory /l\{g | f\}LibraryID /a\{full | fast | default | none | stop\} Parameters /lfLibraryID -Specifies the library to inventory, using the friendly name. /lgLibraryID - Specifies the library to inventory, using the GUID. /a\{full | fast | default | none | stop\} - Required. Specifies the type of inventory operation to perform. The following table lists valid inventory operations: Value Description full Performs a full on-media inventory of the library. Removable Storage mounts each tape or disk in the library and reads the on-media identifier. fast Performs a bar code inventory, if the specified library has a bar code reader installed. If the library has no bar code reader, Removable Storage checks the storage slots and reads the on-media identifier on media in slots that were previously empty. default Performs an inventory using the default method specified in the library's Properties dialog box. none Performs no inventory. stop Stops the current inventory for the specified library, if one is being performed. /? - Displays help at the command prompt.
To change the friendly name or description of an RSM object rsm rename /t\{drive | library | changer | storageslot | iedoor | ieport | physical_media| media_pool | partition | logical_media | media_type | drive_type | librequest | oprequest | computer\} \{/f | /g\}ObjectID /nNewName \[/dNewDescription\] \[/b\] Parameters /t\{ object \} - Indicates the type of RSM object you are specifying with its friendly name or GUID. /fObjectID - Specifies the object to be renamed, using its friendly name. /gObjectID - Specifies the object to be renamed, using its GUID. /nNewName - Specifies the new name for the RSM object. /dNewDescription - Specifies the new description for the RSM object. /b - Hides the text on completion, for scripting purposes. /? - Displays help at the command prompt.
To set the destination for UI messages rsm ui /oOperation /tUIType /\{l | c\}\{f | g\}ContainerID \[/dDestination\] \[/b\] Parameters /oOperation - Specifies whether to add or remove items from the list of destinations, using one of the parameters in the following table: Value Description add Adds a new destination (computer name) to the list. delete Removes an existing destination from the list. deleteall Clears the entire destination list. When the destination list is empty, UI messages of the type specified by the /t swtich will not appear on any computer. /tUIType - Specifies the type of message for which you are setting the destination, using one of the parameters in the following table: Value Description INFO Informational messages REQ Messages that are "requesting" in nature ERR Error messages /cgContainerID - Specifies the computer object for which you are redirecting messages of the type specified by /t, using the object's GUID. /cfContainerID - Specifies the computer object for which you are redirecting messages of the type specified by /t, using the object's friendly name. /lgContainerID - Specifies the library object for which you are redirecting messages of the type specified by /t, using the object's GUID. /lfContainerID - Specifies the library object for which you are redirecting messages of the type specified by /t, using the object's friendly name. /dDestination - Specifies the computer to which you are redirecting messages. If omitted, the local computer is used. /b - Hides the text on completion, for scripting purposes. /? - Displays help at the command prompt.
