Hey

You need to do some home work about SLP... expire after copy - is for 1st copy - the one on disk.

After duplication you do have 2nd copy which became primary one and this one is being shown in the catalog... You can you the following command to check me out

bpimagelist -backupid your-backup_id -L

and then search for Copy number: 1 - I think it won't be there but you will find out Copy Number: 2

good luck - and do some reading about slp's if you do not want to get into troubles... my advise.
