Hello,

I am having problems with Std WinSvr2003 and NTBackup not releasing the tape after it has backed up.
I'm using a Sony AIT 35/70Gb LVD drive in a Proliant ML350.
My command i'm using to do the backup is...
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data\Backup.bks" /n "Media created 09/09/2004 at 13:31" /d "Set created 09/09/2004 at 13:31" /n "Media created 09/09/2004 at 13:31" /v:no /r:no /rs:no /hc:on /m normal /j "Backup" /l:s /p "8mm AIT1" /um"

Every single time a backup has been performed I have to manually force the tape to eject.

Puzzled!

Any help would be fantastic.

Thanks
Mark

Cool, thanks very much, after much fiddling around with bits of the batch files using RSM, I got there!
