looking for a command line to eject a tape from 2003 server after backup complete

Hi, I have a batch file that backs up data to a tape, and wanted to add a command at the end to eject the tape.  Problem is, sometimes the operator states that the tape wont eject when they press the button.  when I log into the system it acts like there are open files on the tape, and I have to fuss with it, then it finally ejects via a eject command from the mmc.  So really I was looking for a command, with some sort of "force" or "unconditional", varatable, so even if its in use (or it thinks its in use) it gets kicked out.

Thanks a tonn

Are you using any 3rd party backup tool. If yes then check it over there, in options tab there will be an option as "Eject tape after competion". Activate that option.

If you are not using any 3rd party software then pls let us know how are taking the backup's on tape drive.
