Automatic Inventory?

I have a support call from a user in Vietnam who has reported that their Backup Exec 2010 no longer automatically runs an Inventory when a tape is inserted to the drive.  I am not familliar with Backup Exec, is this possible?

You cannot automatically run

You cannot automatically run an inventory when a tape is inserted.

What you can do is to schedule an inventory on fixed times. If you know the end-user is changing the tapes at 1 PM you can schedule an inventory at 1.15 PM.

That's my conclusion, so far,

That's my conclusion, so far, I have only found references to configuring BEMCMD to run a batch file prior to the job.

Re: You cannot automatically run

FYI charan -  Kind of puzzled why you are asking a NetBackup question in a Backup Exec forum they are two complete different products, suggest you post in the correct forum.
