Ejecting tapes manually from a tape library connected to Netbackup

Today i have ejected tapes from my tape library i am sharing the procedure with you all.

1) From the Netbackup Admin Java console click on media and choose which tapes you wish to eject from the library and the right click on the tape and select " Eject Volumes From Robot "



Now select to eject 





























You may see message like "media eject in transit" or "in transit".
Once all the tapes are put in the I/O station, you will see a message on the console "Remove ejected media from media access port. Do you wish to continue with the eject?"



Do not click anywhere (Clicking Yes Before removing the tape from the library will occur error which may cause ROBOT to freeze). Go to the library and remove all the tapes from I/O station. Once done, click "Yes" on the message.
CAUTION :- Clicking Yes Before removing the tape from the library will occur error which may cause ROBOT to freeze
