Using logical names with multiple translations?

» close window

The Question is:

A logical is defined as
"backup_disk" = "DISK_4:" (LNM$SYSTEM_TABLE)
        = "DISK_6:"
        = "DISK_1:"
Whenever I try to create a file using logical "backup_disk" it is created on
 DISK_4. Is is possible to create file on all disks useing logical "backup_disk"

The Answer is :

  File access operations occur on each logical name translation, until
  the file is located.  File creation operations occur on the first
  translation.  In other words, iterative creation is required.
