When you need to operate robots from command line or for test proposes.

I use it when I'm installing or troubleshooting robotic devices and with I need to change media's slot position. Other use is to try removing tapes from drives.

Extract from NBU Admin Guide II:
You can verify your device configuration by running the Device Configuration wizard. However, some details of a device configuration cannot be validated without attempting tape mounts. You can use the NetBackup robtest utility to mount tapes and validate the configuration.

Have a look at this TechNote for robtest examples:

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Robtest will interfere with robotic operations, preventing any mounts or dismounts from occurring while running. Please exit the utility when testing has been completed.
