An imported tape contains content that was created by another DPM server.
During the recatalog operation, DPM reads from the tape and adds information about the data that it contains to the database. After the recatalog operation is completed, you can recover data from the tape by selecting a recovery point from the data on the tape.
To recatalog an imported tape
In DPM Administrator Console, click Management on the navigation bar.
On the Libraries tab, select the tape to import.
In the Actions pane, click Recatalog imported tape.
