I know I can have a backup job eject a tape after a job completes. I have Differentials going to a single tape mulitple days per week. Is there any way to create a job just to eject a tape without writing new data or is my only option to create a new backup job set to backup some small file and use the eject tape at end option?
I'm concerned if the dummy backup fails due to a full tape, write protected tape, etcetera that Backup Exec will just consider the job failed and not eject the tape as failed doesn't equal completed.
So either positive answer would be good.
- a method to eject the tape on schedule no matter what
- a dummy backup job would eject the tape even if the backup "fails"
TonyUser has given me a way to do 1. I'm afraid 2 might not be possible. Assuming no better answer is given I'll just leave a scheduled task to run weekly doing "c:\program files\Symantec\Backup Exec\bemcmd" -o115 -d"HP 1"
