Multiple copies in vault 6.0

Hi,

I have 6.0 Mp4 master serevr in HP UX11.23.. ,i am trying to configure a vault profile i have noticed something interesting.. while configuring destination storage unit (multiple copies) , it is saying both storage units should be

connected to same media server, it is ok if both media server is having robotic control in case of any of them does not have robotic control..  duplication might be slow , has any one configured multiple copies in vault(both storage unit being different media servers??)

With the duplication option

With the duplication option you have to use the same media server... typically what we do is assign each tape to a different volume pool. so we have a short retention onsite and a longer retention that gets sent offsite.

As for both media server shareing robotic control its fine but Dups are still going to only use one.
