Is there a way to eject a tape after a backup of just one file.
Nothing else should be in this tape.
This tape needs to go out every day.

Re: Script

Create a policy and pool for this particular backup...
In the policy > file list, choose the file you want to backup
eject the tape daily vai GUI or write a script to do it.

Hope i get your question right .....


Re: Script

Things to consider are how many slots are there in yout TLU.
If there are ample slots you can write a schedule to freeze and unfreeze the tapes a per your requirement.

Re: Script

If you don't want to eject manually, you can use the bpend_notify scripts to call a script that initiates an eject. You can use the vmchange command to eject.
