Eject tape directly to i/o slot

Veeam Logoby rputegnat » Wed Nov 08, 2017 1:39 pm

Hi,

I'd like to know if it's possible to eject automatically my tape to the i/o slot of the tape library after backup job (we are using VEEAM V9).
I know it's possible to eject the tape somewhere in the tape library but i can't find somethind about "forcing" the destination.

Thanks !

Export functionality should be used in this case. Thanks.

Thanks for the answer.
If I understand correctly the export functionnality is not configurable in the step of my job as Eject media once the job finishes ?

'Eject' means eject tape from drive and move it to the library's slot while 'export' closes media set and moves tapes to I/O slots. It is configurable in both backup to tape and file to tape job options.
