MSL6060 & Netbackup

Hi All,

We are running Netbackup 6.0 MP5 on HP-UX 11.23. We also have (2) MSL6060 tape libraries with 4 drives each. Each MSL6060 goes to a media server. So, in all we have (1) master server and (2) Media Servers with a MSL6060 each.

I am trying to write a script that would allow me to see the percentage each virtual drive is being utilized. I would like to make sure that all drives are somewhat used evenly. Is there net Netbackup command that would show how utilized a drive is?

Also, since in Netbackup 6.0, the EMM database now resides on the master server (not on each media server as it did in the past), can you query both MSL6060s from the Master server without going to each media server?

Thanks in advanced!
