Sorry for the late summary as I was reminded by David Thorburn-Gundlach. :)
Thanks for all who replied.

My original problem/questions

> My company just purchased (2) FastStor DLT4000 tape
> drive which contains up to 7 data cartridges.
> Q1:
> Can anyone recommend a software package to access

Check out this site.

$450 for 3 commands:
jbinit: to initialize the jukebox
jbstatus: to tell jukebox status/tape locations
movejb: to move tape from magazine to DLT driv

Also, Legato (Solstice Backup) or NetBackup (Solstice Enterprise Backup) both
handle tape stackers/robots.

> Q2:
> Are there Unix commands that can access the tape loader
> and change tapes?
