EJECT Tape drive command

Hi Guys,

I've written a Windows App to check our Novell backups and would like to be able to eject the tape from the drive once the backup has been checked.

Is there any Novell command lines / scripts I can use to do this?

We use Backup Exec 9.2 to backup the server and through the console is the only way I know of ejecting the tape without physically pressing the button on the drive.

Any help is much appreciated,

Robbie

No, as they are tape drive and backup software-dependant. You might ask
if BE has an RPC call to do that though.
