I have a script that deleted cloned savesets, and frees up disk space, on 
adv_file devices (I only have enough disk space for one days's backup, so 
every day, we run scripts to delete data off the adv-file disk device, 
that has been cloned to tape [i.e., copies=2]). Problem is, some of my 
clients are virtual servers, on a cluster (Win2003). 

So sometimes the disk device is mounted on NODE1, and the volume is 
NWSERVER.001.RO, and sometimes the disk device is mounted on NODE2, and so 
the volume is NWSERVER.002.RO, depending on which node is hosting the 
virtual server. And only 1 volume is mounted at a time, of course.

So I'd like to query NW, and ask which one of those 2 volumes are mounted, 
and issue a "nsrstage -v -C -V %tapevol%" accordingly.

Thoughts? I can't seem to figure out how to do this. this isn't a mminfo 
query, but I don't know what type of query it is.
