Frist - see my blog on just how it Writes to tape.
www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/understanding-how-netbackup-writes-tape

Now with that understanding your question about jobs wanting a tape drive.

You have different options on how to set up the use of your tape drives.
When you setup a Storage Unit, you tell it how many tape drives to use at once.
For example we are going to say 2 drives.
You also say how many Streams can go to the tape drive at once.
For example we are going to say 10 streams.

So far we have 2 tape drives with 10 streams per drive - so right now we can have 20 active jobs at once.

10 jobs streaming to driveA and 10 jobs streaming to driveB

Now a job streaming to driveA completes.  A job that is queued will now go active and stream to driveA so it has 10 streams again.

Installation environment:

If you are in the implementation of the process of recovery encountered an error: v-126-3
You need in your "master server" and "boot server" to use ping "master server name", "boot server name" and "client name".
This error is not necessarily a result of not upgraded due to patches, it may be because the host did not modify the hosts file created.

Recently I was participating in the annual Disaster Recovery tests. One of my Netbackup servers in DR scope is installed on windows and its performing backups of virtual machines (VCB backup proxy server). Since this server is utilitising on daily basis about one tape I projected that during DR test I will just import all tapes from this server (there should not be more then 3 tapes - last three backup sets). So I wasn't creating any hot backup to tape (yet another tape to be offsited). During DR test I imported all needed tapes. Phases I and II went smoothly, I was able to see clients backups in reports, cool. I ran BAR and configured it to restore first VMware machine client. What was my surprise when after selecting "Select for Restore/ Restore from Virtual Machine Backup" BAR told me that there is no backup available to restore from!! I checked all VMmachines that were backed up through this VCB server - the same. I ...

Today i would like to discuss in this BLOG "File Sharing problem in storage foundation 5.0". i am using SFHA 5.0 with Windows2003 Server R2 operating system.

Note:- if your Disk Groups are not being import automatically, you can see the 2nd and 3rd link for resolution in the helpfull links below

Storage Foundation  configuration

i have two diskgroups with 3 hardisk drives. Below are some detail information

1.) Basic Disk Group = 2 drives = 4 partition
2.) UsersData Disk Group = 1 drive = 2 partitions (from 2 partitions the one partition is SRL logs)
3.) I am using virtual ISCSI SAN

Problem

My 2nd disk group (UsersData Disk Group) has a share folder on its partition and when my PC gets restart my sharing folder gets unshare so i have to re share it again on daily basis when i switch on my PC.

Resolution

I always believe that the best salesman is a person who really believes that his product is the best.   One way to know about the product is to explore its features and its value for money.  I have been working in the Data Security Domain for quite some time now and have worked on many backup products.   Exploring different products has always been a fun.  In the previous organization that I was working, I got a chance to explore 3 best of the breed backup products.  My manager had asked 3 vendors to show the POC of these products.  One vendor presented and showed us a demo on IBM Tivoli, the other vendor showed us a presentation and POC on HP Data Protector and the third vendor showed us a presentation and POC on Symantec Netbackup. This is where I got the chance to know about the 3 best software’s that I knew of and it was time for us to decide the best software.  Our environment consisted of few Sun Solaris Servers running...
