How to manually lock or unlock a robotic library via the Backup Exec (tm) User Interface
For example: To lock the robotic library's front panel
1 On the navigation bar, click Devices.
2 Select the robotic library.
3 Under Robotic Library Tasks in the task pane, select Lock.
4 Complete the appropriate options as follows:
Job name Type a name for the job or accept the default name.
Select the priority for the job.
5 Do one of the following:
To run the job now, click Run Now.
To set scheduling options, on the Properties pane, under Frequency, click Schedule.
An alternate method that can be used is to right click the Robotic Library and select Lock or Unlock.
Note: Forcing a robotic library's door open without unlocking it properly via the Backup Exec Interface can cause the device to go offline in Backup Exec. The library and server must be powered up in the proper sequence after the device goes offline for Backup Exec to communicate properly with the hardware.
