I sent this on the weekend, so I don't know if it was missed...anyone have any ideas? I've got to add two more storage nodes this week...

I've got two dedicated storage nodes running Exchange that share two tape drives with the Networker server via Dynamic Drive Sharing.
Right now for efficiency I dedicate one tape drive to each node, and
back up their filesystems at the same time, then later do the same for
Exchange, since I have to have two client entries for each.
I'd like to actually back up one node - both filesystem and Exchange -
at once and let it make use of both drives for efficiency, then I can
schedule the backups of each node at different times.
Networker seems to insist that client entries "with the same name" (i.e.
same actual host) cannot exist in the same group if one of the entries
back up filesystem "All". I'd rather not explicitly list filesystems
since I don't know when they'll change (I don't admin the actual system).
Is there another way around it? Do I have to create two groups for each
node, and just schedule them at the same time? Or should I leave it the
way it is?
I have to add two more storage nodes soon, so I'm looking for an
efficient and uncomplicated setup (will be handing this over to the
client at some point).
