How do i add a seperate eject job to run after a backup ?

Hi Guys,

I've had a problem with a backup job running even though it's completed. I found the solution on Experts Exchange which has worked by unticking the eject media option after backup completes but it also said to add another job to run after the backup job to eject the media.
I can't seem to find a way to do this because if i try to schedule another job it wants me to back something up first which i don't want. how can i just schedule an eject ?

Maybe you've found a solution that isn't really optimal. If your jobs keeps running at 99% when you have the eject option in the job checked, there is another way of dealing with it.
Follow article - skip to the section on "Backup Exec 9.x and 10.0 for Windows Servers". Basically it tells you how Backup Exec can be configured to automatically clear the alerts that cause your backup to keep running.
With this article implemented, you should be able to turn the "eject" option back on and the problem should be solved.

If you really want an eject job you could run a post-job command that executes the following command:
bemcmd.exe -o115 -d name_of_your _drive_in_BE
