Hi everyone,

I've got my YDL 1.2 box backing up to a DLT drive every night. The
backups themselves are working perfectly, but what I'd LIKE to do is
be able to issue the "Unload" command to the tape drive after the
backup cycle is complete. Sometimes nobody gets around to changing
the tapes and the previous night's tape gets overwritten. By
unloading the tape I (hopefully) could avoid that as there wouldn't
be any way write TO the tape that was left in the drive.

Any ideas?
