A media server has four configured LTO5 drives. Two are configured to one HBA and two are configured to the other. A Symantec NetBackup administrator needs to add redundancy and reconfigure the tape drives so that each HBA sees all four LTO5 drives. After the zoning and OS configuration has been completed, the administrator wants to add and test one of the new paths to a drive to ensure the environment runs correctly.

A backup administrator needs to perform file system restore operations for two important client systems, client1 and client2. Dedicated resources are available for restore jobs but only one restore job may run at a time. When submitted, the restore jobs will be queued until a restore job that is already running is completed. The restore job for client1 must be performed first and the restore job for client2 must run before any other restore jobs that may be added to the job queue.
