We have an HP MSL library with 2 lto-6 drives. When I am cloning savesets to tapes (scripted through cli), it's always using only one drive. Is it possible to tell Networker to start using both drives concurrently? I could do that by splitting the savesets into 2 lists and running 2 clone jobs, but I hope networker can do that in a more efficient way.
Thanks for tips.
You can achieve this by reducing the "Target session" parameter on the device.
Target session does not work for cloning, just backups.
Of course, I did mean splitting the clone jobs and then running it. To help it go to 2 different devices we need to reduce the Target sessions.
Cloning can be considered as a single stream operation.... read from one device and write to one device.
Try starting two cloning jobs to utilize two drives for cloning.
