This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is the functionality of multi-streamed user backups using bpbackup command still not available? I'm doing bpbackup -p Policy -f Filelist and it doesn't understand new stream. Is there a way to get it to work with the command?

As far as I know - no...

Single stream only.

If scripting is used in initiating the bpbackup command, run the command for as many streams as necessary. A new files list would need to be provided for each stream.

bpbackup -f stream1

bpbackup -f stream2


bpbackup -f streamN
