Open a library door

Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To open a library door

  1. Open Removable Storage.

  2. In the console tree, double-click Libraries.

  3. Right-click the applicable library, and then click Door Access.

  4. When prompted, open the door.

Notes

  • To complete this procedure, you need the appropriate administrative credentials for the affected Removable Storage item. To maintain system security, rather than logging in as an administrator, log in as a user without administrative credentials, and run Removable Storage as an administrator by right-clicking the Computer Management icon, clicking Run As, and choosing an account in the local Administrators group.

  • To open Removable Storage, click Start and then click Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. In the console tree, double-click Storage and then click Removable Storage.

  • You can use the library door to insert or remove media. If the library has an inject/eject port, you can use that to prevent a re-inventory of the media. Make sure you use the correct slots in the library.

  • If you exchange media in a library that are not bar-coded, you must perform a full inventory afterward. The media exchange is not detected during a fast inventory and a media ID mismatch will occur the next time the media in the applicable slot is mounted.

  • This procedure applies only to automated libraries.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
