Well, that's a bummer. Would there be a way to script something that
makes a list of the images (there are about eight mount points, so
usually eight images), break them out by tape (or image) and verify them
concurrently? Or, am I just asking for trouble?

That is because bpverify only verifies one tape at a time. Regardless
of if
the backup was multiplexed or not.

question for you folks: if a backup is a MPX backup, why does bpverify
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

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

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

Thanks in advance,
