how to eject tape after multiple jobs
BackupExec 2012 Rev. 1798 64 Bit with Service Pack 3 running on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, backing up a Windows 2008 file server and Active Directory domain controller, an Exchange 2010 server, a Windows 2008 terminal server, a Linux server, a VMware ESXi host, and itself.
Weekly full and daily incremental backups are done to disk and copied to a Tandberg T24 LTO-5 changer.
In addition, monthly copies of the most recent full backups are go to a LTO-5 standalone drive for off-site storage.
Due to the way Backup Exec organizes its jobs, all this adds up to nine jobs (one for each physical server and four for groups of VMs requiring different settings) with five stages each (daily full and weekly incremental to disk, daily and weekly copy to changer, monthly copy to standalone drive). This is basically working. (Except for a few still unsolved GRT problems and a bunch of minor glitches I'll but aside for the moment.)
When all nine monthly copy jobs have run to completion, the tape in the standalone drive needs to be ejected so that it can be taken off-site. Currently I am doing that manually from the Backup Exec console every time, but this is tedious and I would much prefer to have it automated. Is there a way to achieve that?
I have searched this forum for a solution and found lots of discussions that appeared related but no applicable solution.
