What is the operation used to eject media from the tape library

Not quite sure what you mean here, you run the command and follow the prompts on the screen.

Eg.

nbmaster1:/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/admin # vmchange -h nbmaster1 -rh nbmaster1 -multi_eject -w -res -ml E01020 -rt tld -rn 0

*** Eject volume batch #1 is ready to be removed ***
        remove 1 volume(s) from media access port(s) of robot number 0 now
        (press <RETURN> to continue)


You then remove the tape from the CAP/ MAP 'before' pressing <RETURN>.

(If you press <RETURN> first the operation is cancelled and the tape is moved back from the CAP/ MAP to a 'library slot').

This should work:

vmchange -h <emm server name> -rh <robot control host name> -multi_eject -w -res -ml <mediaid_1>:<mediaid2>:<mediaidn> -rt <robot type> -rn <robot number>

Eg.

vmchange -h womble -rh womble -multi_eject -w -res -ml AA0001:AA0002 -rt tld -rn 0

The command is not unique to Solaris, it should work on any NetBackup server
