I=92ve been evaluating Symantec BackupExec and Bacula for use in backing up=
a 6 to 8 server Windows environment and we=92ll be adding Linux later. Ba=
ckupExec has a feature called =93cascaded drive pools=94 where you can put =
two (or more) tape drives in a pool and a job will use the first tape drive=
and then if that tape fills it will use the second and so on.
Is there any way to implement this feature in Bacula?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Typically, it's automatic in Bacula.
=46rom example, you create a pool for each server you want to save (to fi=
le or tape doesn't matter)
For each pool you define the number of volume you want, prelabeled or not=
(bacula could do this alone) and with correct
definition for prunning / purging time, everything going fine.
Read carefully the doc. All information needed is inside ;-)
