I change a tape expiration date with the bpexpdate -m <media_id> -d 10/11/2014 command.
the command did run successful, when I have a look into "images on tape" report, all images on that tape have a expiration date 10/11/2014. But what confuses me is taht the same report is showing a "retention period" of 6 weeks. So are the backups protectec until 10/11/2014? Or does the something expire in 6 weeks?
I read a lot of forum posts the last 15 minutes regarding this topic but no one was giving an exact answer.
So all I want to know: Will these backups be restorable in 10 Weeks?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi revaroo, Marianne,
what I need is a backup that can be restored up to 10/11/2014, regarless waht database NBU has to touch for this to happen. :)
But ok, will mark both replys as solutions.
