Folks, I don't think that's what she's asking.

I think she's asking something like this...

You have a jukebox with 4 tape drives where one is currently being
used to run a multi tape recover.  While the recover is running, your
backups start and can only use 3 of the 4 tape drives for backup.

Obviously since the recover it running, it's not going to stop for a
backup to run, however, networker will ask for a backup tape to be
loaded into that recovering tape drive at the time the backup starts.
When the recover needs the next tape, which tape will get loaded into
the drive?  Will it be the next tape the recover requires or the tape
the backup requires.

Is this what you're asking?

I have never thought of this kind of priority question before and
actually, it's a pretty good question that I can't seem to find the
answer to in the docs anywhere.  Anyone got the answer to this whether
it's what she's asking or not?
