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 /hc:blush:n /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%"
