Syntax

Remove-DPMTape [-DPMLibrary] <Library> [-Tape] <Media[]> [-Async]
 [-JobStateChangedEventHandler <JobStateChangedEventHandler>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-DPMTape cmdlet removes a tape from a System Center 2016 - Data Protection Manager (DPM) library.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a tape from a library

PS C:\>$DpmLibrary = Get-DPMLibrary -DPMServerName "Contoso-DPMServer"
PS C:\> $DpmTape = Get-DPMTape -DPMLibrary $DpmLibrary
PS C:\> Unlock-DPMLibraryDoor -DPMLibrary $DpmLibrary
PS C:\> Remove-DPMTape -DPMLibrary $DpmLibrary -Tape $DpmTape[2]

The first command uses the Get-DPMLibrary cmdlet to retrieve the library for the server. The command stores the result in the $DpmLibrary variable.

The second command uses the Get-DPMTape cmdlet to retrieve the tape object. The command stores the result in the $DpmTape variable.

The third command uses the Unlock-DPMLibraryDoor cmdlet to unlock the tape door.

The final command removes the third tape from the library.
