Importing Infinite Tapes - Getting expired images message?

Level 4
Hey All,

As a follow up to the other post I made earlier.

I have done stage one of the import procedure as defined here:

But when select one of our infinite retention tapes and try stage 2, I get the message that all the images on the tapes have expired, and that no images are ready for phase two import.

How can this happen on infinite retention tapes? I even re-applied the retention period before trying stage two.

Anyone? I have to be able to get this info back into our db so we can restore from it if we have to.

Thanks in advance.Message was edited by:

How long are you waiting to perform the phase 2?

Please post the exact message you get in the duplication log.

This is old, but it should still work.
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimport -create_db_info -id D0003 -server megatron -L /tmp/bpimport.phase1 &

Generate image list:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimport -PM -s 01/01/71 00:00:00 -e 09/20/01 23:59:59 -id D0003 | awk '{print $5}' > /tmp/import_list

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimport -Bidfile /tmp/import_list -L /tmp/bpimport.phase2 &

Jed - Next day, I have even changed the expiry date again to give me more that the week it initally gives you.

Bob - Bugger, still getting the same message with that 2nd command.

INF - Found no images matching the selection criteria that were ready for phase 2 import.
