I am new to veritas so please excuse the dumb questions I am about to ask.  When a backup is finished, how do I know how many tapes it used.  I can see on the summary that it says what tape it used, but I beleive it is running over to more then one tape.  How can I tell?

In 9.1 it isn't easy. You actually have to read through the log file to find the first tape name then the second tape name. I wish Veritas would do someting about it in the next release...

So following that logic, in the log file, or xml file, for every time I see a Slot: [number]    Media label: [letter] it is writing to a new disk?
