Media Access Port

I am wondering if there is a way to determine the media access port state/status (open or closed) from the command line?

Re: Media Access Port

I don't think there is a specific command but I know when I run a vmchange -robot_info on our Storagetek L700 I get return code = 251 when the MAP is open.  So I test for this.

Re: Media Access Port

Hi,

To check media access port state, Im not sure if there is a commando to check it...Look

About injecting and ejecting volumes

Media access port (MAP) functionality differs between robotic libraries. For many libraries, NetBackup opens and closes the MAP as needed. However, some libraries have the front-panel inject and the eject functions that conflict with NetBackup’s use of the media access port. And for other libraries, NetBackup requires front-panel interaction by an operator to use the media access port.

Read the operator manual for the library to understand the media access port functionality. Some libraries may not be fully compatible with the inject and eject features of NetBackup unless properly handled. Other libraries may not be
compatible at all.

If you wanna move tapes from slot to drive or vice-versa you can use robtest command.
