Storage Works 1/8 G2 Tape Autolaoder and Symantec BEW 2012

Does anyone now if a command can be issued at the end of the BE job to move the tape, being written to, from the drive to the mailslot so that an operator can access the tape to be sent to off site storage daily?  Does anyone know what happens if at the end of the BE job you select the option to eject the tape?

Hi,

 

If the backup job is picking the cartridges in Random. Then if you choose the eject the tape after a backup job. It will be returned to the slot from where it waqs picked up.

 

But if the Rewind task is delayed. The eject task might time out.

 

For the Command, there is no such command which you can use when a backup job is in running state.
