I might be wrong, but I thought that if the MUST_USE_LOCAL_DRIVE was set on the master then it will also automatically be set for ALL media servers. I think I remember reading that somewhere, but I don't have a reference.
OK, I found this in the "help" section of the java GUI for the master server properties under "General Server" .
If the client is also a media server and the Must Use Local Drive check box (for the master server) is checked, backups of the client must occur on a local drive.
If the client is not a media server, this setting has no effect.
It looks like the source that you used is inacurate or else my source is inacurate. I tend to think the source I used is correct because it makes no sense for a client to be a master server, but many clients are (SAN) media servers.Message was edited by:
