question for you folks: if a backup is a MPX backup, why does bpverify
only do one tape at a time? I didn't see a flag to throw in the doc. 

here's my bpverify cron script, cribbed straight from Veritas:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpverify -hoursago $HOURS -client
mmora1  -L $OUTFILE

where '$hours' is 24, 'mmora1' is my oracle server, and '$outfile' is
the logfile name.

It's taking forever for this thing to verify---the backup (multiplexed)
takes about four hours to run, the verify takes about 12.

Thanks in advance,

-Dan Dobbs
