[Veritas-bu] Splitting large jobs

I have done this sort of thing by using multiple policies and exclude
lists, e.g.
Policy 1 :  /big/mydocs/[0-9A-Za-m]*
Policy 2 :  /big/mydocs/[n-z]*
Policy 3 :  /big		Exclude_list contains
Policy is a catch-all to ensure nothing is missed.
Some combination of this should work ... it's a bit messy though.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] Splitting large jobs

I have a 1TB volume mounted on /big, it mostly contains the users

At the moment I backup the box nightly to a 6 tape library using the 
ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES directive, which works fine. However it is getting to
stage where the job that does /big is taking to long.

Is there any way to automatically split the job up, so that it can make
use of 
the other tape drives in the library that are idle?

So far my only thought is to split it manually by changing the backup 
selections to something like:

However that then leaves out /big/*

Any thoughts?
