Suspend at time of eject is the default.
Defer media ejection until a later time. The reports that are marked with an asterisk (*) on the Reports tab are generated only when all media selected by the profile have been ejected.
Eject non-NetBackup media that is managed by NetBackup Media Manager.
Eject media immediately as part of the current Vault job. The reports that are marked with an asterisk (*) on the Reports tab are generated only when all media selected by the profile have been ejected.

To send the notification email to different address, enter the email addresses in the field below thecheckbox.
Eject notification is configured for each profile on the Eject tab, for each robot on the Vault Robot dialog box, and globally for Vault on the Vault Management Properties dialog box General tab. Vault sends the notification to the first email addresses found in that order. You can configure different addresses in each place.

If you create catalog backup media in a profile in which you eject media, you must add the appropriate catalog volume pool to the off-site volume pools eject list.
If you use a vlt_ejectlist_notify script to eject media that is not created by NetBackup or Vault, you must add the volume pool in which that media resides to the list of the profile that you run to eject that media.
Select if you do not want to eject media with this profile.
Select to suspend original backup media. Then enter the number of days before the Vault job to suspend media.
Use this option only if you vault original images and want to prevent NetBackup from writing partial images on backup media.

Also, this option does not suspend media that is in use, such as media to which NetBackup is writing backup images.
This option suspends duplicate media that is created by Vault. However, theoption is a better choice for suspending duplicate media because it does not use CPU cycles to select media to suspend.
Select to suspend media in the eject list, then select eitheror .
