Hi, everyone!! Well, I have a question, hard to explain it in english (I'm from Argentina), but I will do my best. I have configured Netbackup (on HPUX) with one big spool of tapes, and all the policies use that spool to do the backups. But what I find out is that once a policy, lets say "unix01" is finished, Netbackup uses another tape to do the next policy "unix02", even if the first tape has enough space to backup both policies. Maybe it's a configuration problem, basically what I want is to use each tape until it's full, and then load the next, and so on, and not changing the tapes everytime a policy begins. So, if I have ten policies, no mather how big is each backup, it will take at least ten tapes. Please let me know if you could help me. Regards.
Bingo!! You got it! With your help I realize that the tape rotation is done not by policy but by storage unit. And that is why it's changing the tapes, as I've installed version 6.0. You mentioned that version 6.5 will fix this behavior, so I will try to do the upgrade.
