We have a tape library with two drives, Is it possible to have two secondary copies aimed to this same tape library and to start two auxiliary copies at the same time?


My desired goal is to have at final two tapes with the same data so way to keep one of them on another safe offsite location.

Yes this is possible 🙂

The aux copies will claim drives, if all drives have been claimed by aux copies then the remaining aux copies will wait until a drive is released.

If you have default settings each aux should claim one drive at a time.

Should work without issues 👍
