Cascaded drive pools in Backup Exec 2010?

Hi,

We have two HP Ultrium 3 - SCSI LTO drives that i would like to add to a cascaded device pool in Backup Exec 2010.

I have added them to a device pool, but they don't seem to cascade over to the next once the first tape is full. (it prompts for the tape to be changed)

We were able to cascede these two drives using Backup Exec 11d, but not since upgrading..

Does anyone know how i would go about configuring them?

Thanks

The option to configure CASCADED DEVICE POOL has been removed and is not present in BEWS 2010.

The only thing that I can think of for your scenario would be to split the job in 2 and target it on the two drives.
