TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2016) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Server 2012 Cannot Eject Mounted ISO

Mounted an ISO from a network resource \\servername\sharename\imagename.iso

Then it would not eject. “An error occurred while ejecting DVD drive…”  Ya think?

I exhausted my voluminous (read minimal) “the drive is stuck” knowledge base.  UofG and UofB gave me nothing.  However, I did discover some nifty powershell stuff like mount-diskimage, dismount-diskimage, and the ubiquitous get-diskimage.

But, alas! no joy in Mudville.

One of my co-workers Lync’d up and gave me this suggestion:  compmgmt.msc, drive management, eject from there.  Wala!

I assume (well, my budro says…) that something got “stuck” and had a file or something open and it won’t let the normal UI eject the drive, but the Drive Management tools will do it.  Can we assume this will be effective in Windows 8 also?  I hope I never find out, but you know how that goes.

I am currently genuflecting towards Marrietta, Georgia.  Thank you Edward Walton, the Man, the Legend.

YMMV

Technical Consulting

Something went through both of my brain cells today. And to keep a long story short, it centers on your approach to the question – whatever ...
