Switch drive pools between same job automatically??

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is there a way to switch drive pools on the same job automatically?  Sort of rotate between 2 drive pools?  Or do I need to have 2 separate jobs for this?

So if I have drive pool 1 & 2, can the full backup job use drive pool 1 on one week and drive pool 2 on the next, then go back to drive pool 1 on the 3rd week, etc....??

Unfortunately Wingnut you are only able to point the job to 1 location and will not be able to jump between pools from week to week. As you suggested you would be able to achieve this by creating 2 jobs that run biweekly each targeting one or the other pool. 

I hope this posting was helpful
