Hello All,

I have a client who uses Robot Save in conjunction with the Robot job
scheduler.  However, her paging software is from another vendor, Byteware.
She tells me that she can't get tape change messages through her paging
software, because Robot is intercepting them to its own message queue,
which is locked up for its own use.  Therefore, only Robot's paging product
will pass on these messages.  Apparently this is intended to force Robot
customers to purchase and use the Robot Alert product, at least, this is
what she was told when she called the support line.

She is happy with her current paging product, and doesn't want to have to
purchase the Robot product.

Has anyone found a way around this?  Is it just me, or does this sound like
a reason to look further when evaluating job scheduling and saving
