Ejecting media by using a Vault policy
Use a Vault policy to eject media or generate reports for the Vault sessions that have completed already and for which media have not ejected. In the Vault policy, specify Vault as the policy type, do not specify clients, and specify the vlteject command on the Backup Selections tab.
The following is the format of the vlteject command:
vlteject -eject -report -preview [-profile profile_name] [-profile robot_no/vault_name/profile_name] [-robot robot_no] [-vault vault_name [-sessionid id]] [-auto y|n] [-eject_delay seconds] [-legacy]
The vlteject command resides in the following directory:
The following is an vltejct command example that ejects media for all robots that have sessions for which media has not yet ejected and generates the reports:
vlteject -eject -report
The following example ejects all media that has not yet ejected for all sessions for the CustomerDB vault and generates reports:
vlteject -vault CustomerDB -eject -report
See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I, for more information about creating NetBackup policies.
See the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide for more information about the vlteject command.
See also "Using NetBackup Commands" in the NetBackup Administration Console help.
