Please consider adding extra functionality when creating a Storage Unit on a host where there are a large (15+) number of available tape drives of the same media type. It would be useful to be able to specify which tape drives go into which STU by drive number. Default config could be "all" tape drives of the same media type as of present.  This would facilitate the testing of individual drives with backups initiated via the Administration Console.

For example:-.

/bpstuadd -M server1 -label server2-tld0-lto5-8 -density hcart2 -rt tld -rn 0 -cj 1 -host server2 -drives "IBM.ULT3580-TD.008"

./bpstuadd -M server1 -label server2-tld0-lto5-89 -density hcart2 -rt tld -rn 0 -cj 1 -host server2 -drives "IBM.ULT3580-TD.008:IBM.ULT3580-TD9"
