BRMS How do I eject an appended tape from a MLB prior to IPL

Good Morning

Everytime one of our SAP Journal Entries closes, a job copies it to a library (ONLJRNSAV) and then kicks off a backup of this library to a tape.
I have a MLB and am backing up this library to a tape that is setup to append and this works correctly.
I have a move policy in place for the daily saves and run the MOVMEDBRM command to eject the tape when the backup completes.
I don't know how to do this for an appended tape.
I would like to automate ejecting this appended tape prior to an automated IPL.
Thank you
