Initializing robotic libraries when the Backup Exec service starts

You can enable Backup Exec to initialize a robotic library whenever the Backup Exec service starts.

During startup, if there is media in the storage devices in the robotic library, Backup Exec attempts to return the media to its original magazine slot. If the media cannot be returned to the slot, an error message appears requesting that the media be ejected from the storage device.

You can also create a job to initialize a robotic library.

See Creating a job to initialize a robotic library.
