How do i get job to eject tape even if it fails ?

Hi Guys,

I've got a clients Arcserve backup that fails everyday due to files being open. They don't have an open file option (that i know of) and so i've managed to remove these files (as we don't need them) from the backup job but it's trying to backup c:\windows\system32\dhcp which i can't find when i drill down the folders on the backup list (i can find system32 but no DHCP), this isn't a problem as such as it backs up the rest of the data but just shows failed. The client wants the tape to eject every morning no matter if the backup job worked or not.
How can i either find the DHCP file or get the tape to eject either way ?

Cheers

go to a cmd prompt, cd to \windows\system32 then do an attrib dhcp to see if the file is hidden.  If it doesn't exist, create it.

Can you schedule a job to eject the tape that runs after the backup job?  Or create a backup job that backs up 1 file and set it to eject the tape when it's finished.

Thanks for that but the DHCP isn't hidden and is indeed there when you command to it or browse through my computer.
I also can't find a way just to eject the tape as i'd rather not have to run any more backups if i could help it.

How about excluding the system32 folder?  If that folder needs a restore you're most likely going to have to do a server rebuild.

I think you're right on that point, i'll exclude it and see what else throws up.
