which takes precedence: expiry date or retention period?

i've been extending the expiry of some backup images that are already on tape. i managed to do that when i noticed, in the "Images on Media" report, there is a "Retention Period" column. it says one month. however, i've extended my backup images ("Expiration Date" column) to April 2017.

what would happen after one month when the retention period have been reached?

The hardcoded expiration date of April 2017 will be honoured. 

Have a look at this output for the tape:

nbemmcmd -listmedia -mediaid <media-id>

and detailed image info:

bpimagelist -backupid <image-id> -L
