Functionality has been removed which is required to enable flexibility in environment.

Technote refers: http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO92128

An environment with hundreds/thousands of VM's which are required to be backed up will cause performance issues on media servers or perhaps also crash server due to the consumption of memory consumed by each bpfis process started.

Removing this option limits the environment to now creating multiple policies and scheduling them at different times. Management nightmare.

The issue is more noticeable when backing up remote sites with low bandwidth and limited media server resources like memory.
