Disconnect stalled NDMP sessions

Once, I started installation of Symantec Backup Exec service pack update when tape library inventory job was running. After installation has been completed I ended up with library offline and not available. It happened because of hanged NDMP sessions. To list your media changer and tape drives information run:

storage show mc
storage show tape

or

sysconfig -m
sysconfig -t

To list and kill particular NDMP sessions run:

ndmpd status
ndmpd kill job_id

Then restart Backup Exec service.
