We use Cache-A along with CatDV to archive our files to LTO.

Once a file has been copied to the V-Tape, the archive tape name and Archive Status are updated in the CatDV catalog. But, this information only appears in the catalog from which the backup was done. If I copy the record into a new catalog, as I often do, the archive tape and archive status are blank in the new catalog.

Is this normal?

Thanks for any help with this issue.

You may be seeing an issue with copying catalogs that we fixed about a year ago. Make sure you're using the latest CatDV 9.0.6 client and also the latest CatDV Server. The current version, designed for CatDV 10 but will also work with CatDV 9, is available at:

http://www.squarebox.co.uk/download/CatDVServer6.7b7.dmg (Mac)
http://www.squarebox.co.uk/download/CatDVServer6.7b7.exe (PC)
http://www.squarebox.co.uk/download/CatDVServer6.7b7.zip (Other)

The 6.7 control panel also has a command in the Tools menu called Copy Archive Status which copies the archive status to other clips that refer to the same media file.

This is an issue with v8 that, as Rolf says, was resolved in the early versions of 9.

If you test the server version he points you to and have success, please report back here. I had some trouble with a client and would love to hear if this version resolves it.

Thanks,

Thanks everyone.

Looks like yet another reason to upgrade, which we are currently looking into.
