  1. Scratch Pool Volumes


    Will Netbackup only move media from the "scratch pool" when a volume pool
    runs out of media that isn't FULL or will it also move media if there is
    no media available (i.e. currently being written to in the tape drive)?
    It appears that it will move media even if all the media in destination volume
    pool isn't full.

    Thanks

    Netbackup trys to do all your backups as fast as possible and may use more
    tapes than absolutely necessary to do this.
    If you have 2 backups and 2 drives and multiplexing is 1, then both backups
    will run simultaneously using 2 tapes, even if both the backups would fit on
    1 tape 1 after another.
