Dell Powervault t124 and Backup Exec 11d help with operations

Last Modified: 2013-12-01
Hello, I have a Powervault 124T working with Backup Exec 11d (inherited), I can't seem to figure out how to control the tape drive.. Such as remove cartridges when they need to be rolled out. I really don't see the Dell software to manage the library and don't really see it in Backup Exec.
If anyone with a similar configuration is willing to help me understand this I will open multiple questions at max points.
Maybe start with what is the best way to configure this environment.
and I know you can use the front panel of the 124T to move cartridges around, but is there an interface in backup exec?
should I get the Dell management software?
Thanks in advance for your help
