Hello All,

This is a Korn (ksh) script.

This script gives Tape usage report by Robot - Works for multiple Robots, robot types Slave servers, media types. Must be run on NetBackup Master server 

Note- Rename this file to .ksh from .txt
The carriage returns on the script need to be edited, but works well after.
