set load balancing default to max=1

set load balancing default to max=1

hello all,

we're running the DP 10.10 and we would like to set as default value for all backup jobs (we already set for all our templates) we create with "Blank Filesystem Backup" with loadbalancing max=1 instead of max=5. 

we changed the global option with this value:



# default: 5
# limit: 0 <= MaxNumberOfMirrors <= 20
# This  option  specifies the maximum  number of  mirrors  that GUI
# allows to be  configured  per  datalist / barlist.  A value of 0
# disables configuration of mirrors.


but didn't change the option.

Is it possible? where I could change such value? 

thank you very much

Hi @nschwendener,

I see this requirement in many customer environments. The global option MaxNumberOfMirrors changes something different (number of how many Object Mirrors can be configured in GUI). Using the templates is the only option right now.

I asked the admins to move this post to Idea Exchange so that we can try to change the default or make a new global option for it.
