This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have set a 30 day overwrite period on my tapes. I'd like to extend this overwrite period to 60 days but only for one singe tape, but I know I'll need it for restore. How do I do that ? Or what would be the thing to do to keep this one tape available for restore ?

1 of 2 ways:

1. Remove it from the mix, physically write-protect it and bring it back into use after 60 days;

2. Create another media set and assign this tape to that with the correct OPP/APP settings.
