Yes, exactly. When I do one copy from multiple clients to
separate media (each copy's has it's own, separate medium as 
destination in the server's jukebox) then everything works 

When I do just two copies from one client to two different
server-media, then the copies of this client get stuck because
there is only one server smbd for two only alternatingly 
accessible client-media.

Are there solutions availlable?
