cartready(8) tell the tape server about cartridge changes


cartready (No arguments evaluated)


If you have no cartridge handling system, a human must put the next cartridge into the drive, if necessary. Then the backup- server must get a hint, when the maintainer has done it. This is achieved entering this command on the backup server host, after the new cartridge is inserted. Nonetheless the server process waits a certain timespan, until it accesses the drive the next time (See: "Cart-Insert-Gracetime" in /usr/server/lib/server.conf).
