for the vmquery output you can see that all backups that were on that media are expired (the same conclusion you did)

Time Assigned:  -

You have to import the tape and then duplicate it to the new tape.

If you need to know the original expiration level check the expiration date of the tape after you finish the second import phase check
The new expiration date will be the original expiration level counted from the time of import.

 

If your backups are spanning tapes, you must finish the phase one import for all tapes and then start the second import phase.

You were either mistaken about the expiration date or someone has manually expired it. You will need to import images on this tape. Use Catalog section of the GUI to 'Initiate import' to perform phase 1 import, followed by an 'Import' of images (phase 2).
