Problem Description
I set & exported the environment variable VOL_SWITCH_CMD for my autochanging tape drive. The command issued works from the command line but not from edgemenu.

Cause
This is caused by an error in the documentation & an error in the environment variable definition in /etc/default/edge.cfg.

Solution
The variable is incorrectly identified in /etc/default/edge.cfg as VOL_SWITCH_CMD. A search of the edge binary shows it should have been SWITCH_VOL_CMD. Make the correction in /etc/default/edge.cfg, as well as in your manual (page 106).

This will be corrected in later releases of BackupEDGE & in later printings of the manual.
