Tape reported as bad via the robot.

I'm wondering I've got errors from my robot (I6000) that says I have a couple tapes that need to be replaced.

 

What should I be doing Netbackup wise? I'm not sured how to handle this. I keep my media as infinite so it never expires. Would I just duplicate the tape and eject the bad one? Or is it something else?

Re: Tape reported as bad via the robot.

Duplicate the tape. once complete, expire the original tape (bpexpdate -d 0 -force -m <mediaID> ) and then delete the origianl tape from NBU and remove it from the robot.
