You can use robtest and move the tapes from their slots to the interactive

If this is under a unix flavour, you could write a little expect script
that automated it for you.

Im looking into this as an option because our offline vaulting is creating
20 - 25 tapes in a session and our door also only holds 14 tapes.

I'm trying to automate the process for a unix operator that will be
removing the tapes from the tape unit and giving them to the offsite
storage company.
