I'm using Netbackup Datacenter 3.41 (patched) on NT and a Exabyte 690D with
6 DLT 7000's.  Sometimes I may have to interrupt vaulting for emergency
restores or because of maintenance on servers.  After doing this the tapes
that were in use remain in the drives.  

*       Is there a easy way to take the tapes out of the drives remotely?  I
usually walk someone through the process of doing it with the LCD panel but
that is not always convenient.  

*       If I did nothing (other than 'up' the drive in Device Manager) how
long would it take the software to automatically re-use those drives that
were downed and still have the tape inside?
