The scheduled daily backup runs on a HP Storageworks Ultrium 920. A daily tape is used for the overnight backup and then ejected from the drive using the schedule eject function from within Backup Exec 2012. There is a human element to put the next daily tape into the drive for the following overnight backup. This sometimes gets missed. I have been tasked with resolving this issue.

Could we have a schedule job to check a tape is in the drive which can be over written on the following over night backup. If the tape is present no further action is required, but if a tape is required, then email a group of recipients detailing the request.
