How do you do Multiplexing (pull from multiple arrays simultaneously) with Symantec Backup Exec 11d?

Hi guys. I guess this is a pretty simple question - I just can't work it out myself! We have a HP Ultrium 960 Backup Drive, that has a data backup through-put that exceeds the speed of one SCSI mirror array. Thererfore I want to use what I believe to be called 'Multiplexing' to pull from 4 seperate mirror volumes on the same Server at once. We managed this with ArcServe Brightstor, but the powers that be here want to use Symantec Backup Exec 10d. This is fair enough, but how do I do it? I can't find the Multiplexing option anywhere, and it isn't mentioned in the Help file for the software.

Any advice would be enormously appreciated.

Many thanks,

Backup Exec 10d does not have multiplexing. Symantec would say to use NetBackup if you want multiplexing. You can get around the problem by using disk to disk to tape, we've got an array of 14 disks for our staging so it keeps the LTO running at full speed. Of course this costs a bit of money but you can get away with SATA since the disks aren't run 24x7.

Is it perhaps the WORM (Write Once Read Many) option that I see? Any thoughts anyone?

Many thanks for confirming this. Since posting the request I've read similar things on the Web. It is most useful to have this confirmed for me - many thanks for taking the time :)
