[Veritas-bu] backing up logical host with sso

i have the following issue to solve.
a two node cluster running one logical host. both cluster physical nodes are
connected to a library via san. they therefore are media servers.
the nbu master server runs on a separate box, also connected to san.
according to sso manual i have to create two storage units, each for every
physical cluster node. suppose i call them A_stu for node 1 and B_stu for
node 2. of course the storage units correspond to the same library and they
have media servers set accordingly to each physical node.
i want to backup the logical host via san despite the fact on which physical
node it actually runs on.
i have to prepare a policy then to backup the logical host. in the policy
config i have to set the storage unit to use and here's where the problem
exists. which storage unit should i choose here to be able to backup the
if i set the stu do A_stu and the logical host migrates to node B, it will
be backed up via LAN to A_stu.
i was wandering if setting the storage unit to Any_Available will solve the
problem, but i have no chance of testing this.
can anyone help with it? or maybe there's a better solution?
nbu is 5.1.
