Hi,

You can use $ DISMOUNT/UNLOAD command to unload the volume from the drive. This command is available on all active versions of OpenVMS.

Hi,

Welcome to ITRC
You can also use $ SET MAGTAPE /UNLOAD command to unload the tape from the drive. This command also rewinds the tape.

Hi,

You can use the eject button on the CD ROM to eject the CD. You need to press the button.

cdrecord has a option named "-eject".

dvdwrite knows how to "/eject" a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray, too.

Hi techgee,

Welcome to the ITRC forum.

If your requirement is to unload a tape from a device then you can use the
"SET MAGTAPE" command with the /UNLOAD qualifier.
$ SET MAGTAPE MTA100:/UNLOAD
This would unload the tape from the MTA100 device and also rewind the tape.

For more information, refer -

Hope this answers your question.
