PREVENT_MEDIA_REMOVAL entry in vm.conf
This topic applies to the TL8 robots only.
Specifying this entry changes the default operation for TL8 robots. Without this entry present, NetBackup allows the removal of media.
If this entry is specified in vm.conf, TL8 robots run the SCSI command PREVENT MEDIUM REMOVAL. The robot's main door or the MAP cannot be opened while the robotic control daemon runs.
This entry is read and interpreted on the host on which the TL8 robot control daemon or process (tl8cd) runs.
To override PREVENT_MEDIA_REMOVAL, do one of the following:
Use the test utility and run allow media removal.
Use inject or eject for access, when volumes are added or moved.
