ntbackup rsm eject command

I have workinf on my backup command lines for a win2000 server and winserver
2003. I have the backups running automatically and overwriting exixting tape.

I would like to have the tapes ejected when the backup is complete. I read
that I can use rsm eject or rsm.exe eject. When I insert either at the end of
the command line the backup will not run, the backup report says Invalid
command line parameter 'RSM'

That isn't a parameter for ntbackup. Try putting it on the next line of
the bat file

I saw that link in another post. I must be missing something though because I
think I am doing what it tells me and It dosen't work.

What I do is create the a scheduled backup and then go into "scheduled
tasks" and edit the run command line. I add /um to the end, so that the
backup runs by itself.

But when I try to add the rsm eject, not only does the tape not eject, the
backup never runs. It will start, then quit, and the backup report gives me
the error I listed in my original post.

The first reply to my post says to go to the next line in the batch file.
There is only one line to work with in scheduled tasks, so that's no good.
Maybe I need to be using a batch file, but I am not sure how that works with
scheduled tasks.

Thanks
