i have BE9.1 for netware with an hp storageworks 1/8 autoloader. i want to
perform the following backup job:

Daily backups would be performed Monday - Thursday. the tapes in slot 1-4
(one for each day) would be the daily tapes and could be either appended or
overwritten. the tapes would remain in the autoloader.

Weekly backups would be performed Friday. the tapes in 5-7 would be for the
weekly backup and be rotated and stored off-site each week.

i had asked this question the end of December last year and got no helpful
answer. is this possible to restrict which tapes are used for each backup?
Monday tape slot 1, Tuesday tape slot 2, etc. someone mentioned partition
mode in the last replies. i do not think i understand fully or this approach
will not help me.
