Sending reports and tapes to the off-site vendor

Veritas suggests the following procedure as a guideline only. Your site may have different procedures in place.

After you receive all reports and compare them to the tapes that are intended for off-site storage, prepare the tapes and reports for pickup.

To send reports and tapes to the off-site vendor

  1. Use only the containers that storage operations or storage administration specify.
  2. Include the following reports:

    • Vault Inventory

    • Distribution List for Vault

    • Picking List for Vault

  3. Complete the off-site vendor pickup form. Note container numbers, vault number, and date of shipment.
  4. File a copy of the Picking List for Robot report in an accessible location.
  5. Sign off for completion.
  6. Place a copy of the Distribution List for Robot report in an accessible location. This report is a reference for returning tapes.
