Open a Library Door

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista

To complete this procedure, you need the appropriate administrative credentials for the affected Removable Storage item. To maintain system security, rather than logging on as an administrator, log on as a user without administrative credentials and then run Removable Storage with administrative credentials.

To run Removable Storage with administrative credentials

  1. Open a command prompt with administrative credentials. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then point to Run as administrator.

  2. Provide administrative credentials for an account in the Administrators group, and then click Submit. A command prompt with administrative credentials opens.

  3. At the command prompt, type mmc.exe.

Additional considerations

  • If you exchange media without bar codes in a library, 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.
