Scheduling an unlock job in BE2012

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a remote customer that swaps tapes in a drive each day for their daily backup (It's a robotic library, but they only half-fill one tape). On the old BE2010r3, I could schedule an unlock to run when appropriate so they wouldn't have to call to have be do that step for them. BE2012 just fires those jobs off immediately without any sort of schedule option.

Is there a way to do this scheduled?

You can schedule this command using the Windows scheduler or use it as a post-command in one of your jobs.

c:\windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe Submit-BEUnlockJob -RoboticLibraryDevice '"Robotic library 0001"'

Note that "Robotic library 0001" is just an example.  You should get the name of your tape library by issuing this cmdlet
