CHKEXPBRM process being ignored with parallel saves

CHKEXPBRM
We have a Backup Control Group that requires the CHKEXPBRM process to cancel the Backup if the required amount of media is not present. If the Backup Control Group attribute is set to Parallel Devices *NONE, the Backup Job will issue error BRMS1931 and threfore can be cancelled using System Reply List Entry or manually. However, if the Backup Control Group Attribute is amended to Parallel Devices (Min 1 Max 2), the CHKEXPBRM process appears to be skipped even though it is in error. This can be proved by adding a CHKEXPBRM Exit Routine before the Save Process commences and view the joblog after the Job has completed.

Why is is this process being ignored for Parallel Saves ?
