Who did you confirm it with at Veritas?  I'd like to talk with them...since
its always been same class only.  the current architecture of the product
does not function that way...unless 4.5 has some fancy new feature.

Hey, I may be dead wrong too...I'll track down one of the NBU developers
here at the show and ask them.

I got an answer from Douglas Ritschel regarding this and the answer is
yes, incrementals are schedule and class independent.  Any incremental
(regardless of class or schedule) is based on the last full (regardless
of class or schedule).  I confirmed this with Veritas.

Be careful with those Offsite pools..... :-[
