VXA Tape Labels

By dennis.rhine ·
Good morning - I am trying to install a second Tandberg VXA-320 library to my backup server. This library uses bar-code labels to identify the tape. The problem I am encountering is that the ArcServe backup software cannot distinguish between two different tapes with the same factory label {ex. A0000001}.

Does anyone know of a way to quickly create unique labels for these new tapes? For example, I would like to create printed labels that are in a sequence like 'LIB20001'.

What Software

I too have a pTouch printer connected to the computer and have tried printing several different ways. When I used the barcode option everything looked right but the library wouldn't read it. I tried printing two different sizes, use MS Word to generate the code, and other things without success. It looks like the scanner is looking for a particular size as well. The factory labels have a bar code that is about 2" long and the pTouch is either too long or short.
