importing expired tape
Netbackup Enterprise 220.127.116.11 running on Solaris 10
I got a Monthly tape range MRT001 - MRT012
All of them has been Vaulted except one tape MRT008 which has return to the library.
Now I need to restore files from all of these tapes. and that is easy except from one MRT008 which got expired some weeks ago.
This MRT008 is now Active and IN the library it just wait for the next Monthly schedule.
All the data on that tape must still be there as it was last mounted a year ago.
I try to import the tape from the catalog view.
I select import and Media id MRT008, I select Media server and Date/Time Range to before the backup onto this tape, leave the rest default.
When I hit search it can't find anything.I searched the forums and it seems I have to delete this media first before it can find it.
If I just select Media ID <all> it still can't find anything.
Does this mean you can just import media that doesn't exist at all?
In my case the media exist it is just expired.
Any help/insight appreciated.
