  • Help with tape expiration dates

    Good morning to y'all,

    On the company where I work we daily perform a Backup which takes two LTO7 tapes.

    As soon as the backup finishes it changes the expiration date of the tapes and adds 7 days from the date on which them were used.

    The case here is that one of the tapes is always one day late on the brms catalog and we have to adjust it by hand every day and this causes failures sometimes (Because we expect to have two tapes available and we notice that we just forgot to expire them by hand)

    Here is an example

    000042 + *ACT 17/02/20 23/02/20 TAPMLB04 *NONE DIARIA
    000043 + *ACT 17/02/20 24/02/20 TAPMLB03 *NONE DIARIA

    Can someone please help me, this situation is starting to bug out my older, wiser colleagues as we're losing some precious overnight backup windows because the backups can't start

    Best regards
