Backup 2 Disk and Changer.cfg questions

We have three Backup Exec 12.5 servers in our environment. All of our backups are B2D and write to a Data Domain device. Currently each backup server writes to their own directory tree. We would like to consolidate the backups from all three servers into the same directory tree and have them all write to the same devices. My concern is what this will do to the Changer.cfg file. I noticed that for every backup this file gets modified. We did a test and had two backup servers write to the same device (directory) and noticed that both backup server jobs modified the same Changer.cfg file. My questions - How does Backup Exec use the Changer.cfg file? - What kind of information is stored in the Changer.cfg file? - If we do have more that one backup server write to the same device, how can I be sure that the "B2Dxxxxxx.bfk" file names will stay unique between the different backup servers? Has anyone else ever had more that one backup server write to the same location for B2D backups? Thanks, Larry

Re: Backup 2 Disk and Changer.cfg questions

Each backup-to-disk folder also contains a file named changer.cfg and a file named folder.cfg, which store information about the backup-to-disk files...

If you have the Central Admin Server Option (CASO) or the SAN Shared Storage Option installed, you can share backup-to-disk folders between computers.
