Well, that's not exactly correct.
(Talking unix here.)   If you cd to /nsr/res/nsrdb, then
"ls," youj'll see a whole bunch of subdirectories, numbered 00 -- nn.
Then,
       grep -i loaded, and you'll find the following ugly filenames:

03/2100c906e38f2d3d934339b:loaded bar codes: A00482, ...
03/2100c906e38f2d3d934339b:loaded slots: 42, ...
03/2100c906e38f2d3d934339b:loaded volumes: Linux1.0310 ...

It's the same info an in the original nsr/res files

Yes, in my experience, we shutdown the networker service and
edit /nsr/res/nsr.res.
Remove incorrect loaded slot, barcode and label.
It's could be risky.. But if we know what we're doing..
I don't think so.. :D

In Networker Version 7 of nwadmin, by following media-->devices-->show details,
the "Loaded Devices" window allows you do do normal add/delete/change.
It has three windows -- loaded volumes / loaded bar codes / loaded slots. Underneath it all, there's still a res file but in a subdirectory and with a file that has an inscrutable name. (you _could_ edit it after shutting down
Networker, but that is risky, I agree.)

Shut down Networker.   If you're using versions previous

is there a possibility to unmount a drive with sun solaris 8.
I have a Storagetek L700 and and NSR 6.1.3.
when I perform a nsrjb -H(E) it doesn´t react.
In horizon I can see that the tape isn´t in the drive, with NSR it is
in a drive.
I restartet NSR, but with no effect.

The previous suggestions about putting the correct tape back in the
drive are valid, but may be rather inconvenient if your library is
remote. The other way is to tell NetWorker that the drive is empty.
This
information is stored in the NSR jukebox resource and can be edited
with
extreme care using nwadmin or nsradmin. There are three fields that
need
to be modified, they are called "loaded slots", "loaded volumes", and
"loaded bar codes". Each of these fields has multiple values, comma
separated, and you MUST keep the same number of values. Edit rather
than
deleting each field. It is fiddly and is easier if you write a script
for this. The one I have isn't quite suitable for general release just
yet for various reasons including copyright.
