Opening and closing library door

Before opening a library door, you must issue the Open Door command from the WebUI. NetVault Backup puts a software lock on the library door to prevent anyone from opening the door without issuing the Open Door command. If you do not issue this command, NetVault Backup does not know when tapes are added, removed, or rearranged, and it may attempt to load non-existent media.

On the Tape Library Management page, click Open Door.
