NTBACKUP command line switch for APPEND

This is my old NT4.0 NTBACKUP batch file from a server recently
upgraded to Windows 2000 Operating System:

rem ** This will backup the Information Store and Directory Service on
mailserver01, mailserver02 and mailserver03

ntbackup backup DS \\mailserver01 IS \\mailserver02 /d "mailserver01
IS-DS Full" /b /t Normal /l c:\winnt\backup.log /e
ntbackup backup DS \\mailserver02 IS \\mailserver02 /d "mailserver02
IS-DS Full" /b /t Normal /l c:\winnt\backup.log /e /a
ntbackup backup DS \\mailserver03 IS \\mailserver03 /d "mailserver03
IS-DS Full" /b /t Normal /l c:\winnt\backup.log /e /a

Can anyone assist me in translating this so that it functions in
Windows 2000 NTBACKUP?




So far I'm able to backup a single server using the syntax below:

ntbackup.exe backup DS \\usdbanexch08 IS \\mailserver01 /n
"mailserver01_W2K" /d "mailserver01_W2K" /v:no /r:no /rs:no /hcn /m
normal /j "mailserver01_WIN2K" /l:s /P "DLT" /UM

BUT I can't figure out how the APPEND (/a) switch works so that it
backs up my other two mail servers in a single job like before.

TIA!

See tip 5955 in the 'Tips & Tricks' at http://www.jsiinc.com
The Media variable will contain the tape name for the /A /T "%media%"
