Hello Symantec,

While working on your product (Symantec Veritas Netbackup) from last 5 years, many times I found problem due to wrong drive being picked up for backup.

I think, we should have option of selecting the drives in Storage Unit, may be like check box for each drive in the storage unit. This will help a lot in tape drives management & troubleshooting in Netbackup Environment.

We have this option in HP DP, so Netbackup should also have this.

What is "wrong" drive?
You have to have configured the same type of STU as tape drives (LTO-4, and s.o.) and everytime the right drive should be selected.

Show us the drive configuration and configuration of STUs.
