Eject tape on specific day

Veeam Logoby arno » Thu Apr 24, 2014 6:52 am

Hello all,

Is this possible to set up Veeam to eject tape on a specific day ?

I want to write to the same tape for a week, and eject it on Friday. For what I understand of tape job is that I only can eject it on every run.

Any ideas ?


Best regards

I'm wondering what tape device you're using. Library or standalone drive? Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick answer.

I'm using a standalone Quantum tape drive.

For the moment, I have made a script to eject tape, using MS task scheduler.
Code: Select all
Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapin
Get-VBRTapeDrive | Eject-VBRTapeDrive


I don't know if it's the best way to achieve this...
