Is there anyway to get Server 2003 NTBackup to ignore the labels on tapes in
the Free Pool when it is looking for the next tape in a multitape AutoLoader
based backup?  It ignores and overwrites the label on the first tape, but
when the AutoLoader switches to the next tape, NTBackup says it can't find a
tape.

Thanks,
Mike Ober.
