best way to remove tapes from a full library

This is a bad week.

My library is now full. While I have vault, it isn't configured. What is
the best method to free space in a full library?

I'm looking for a complete step by step procedure here, since I'm still
too new to netbackup to understand well how to use it at this kind of
detail.

thanks in advance

Dennis,
Many admins remove media that has become FULL in order to free up slots in the library. Please see this thread in this forum concerning full media.

Dennis.. and as you're new to NetBackup, have a look at my script in that post, all i'm doing there is calling standard NetBackup commands and doing a bit of file manipulation, so it's quite easy to see what's going on in the script - it'll give to a teaser to how simple some of the NetBackup stuff can be..
