    Default Reset Tapes

    I'm done with testing and ready to start actually backing up the servers, but should I reset all of my tapes? If so, what's a proper way to do it?

    It is not really necessary. Your "real" backups will continue to use any unused tapes and, once tapecycle tapes have been used, the tapes you have already used can begin to be overwritten with new backups.

    If you prefer to wipe things clean and start over, you could amrmtape all the tapes you used and then reset your changer to the first configured slot "amtape <config> reset" and start backing up.
