We take AS/400 system backup using BRMS. After every backup we run BUPMAINT job for tape inventory. We have 30 days of retention period and after 30 days tape status shows EXPIRE. But the status shows EJECTED. It should shows AVAILABLE. Before every backup we need to change status from EXPIRE to AVAILABLE. Can any one help me? What wrong we are doing?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Using Isweries Navigator – Go system – Configuration and Service – Hardware – Tape Devices – Tape Libraries – usually(TAPMLB01) – Cartridges

Right click on Volume Properties change Ejected to Not Shared

To avoid Tapes (Cartridges) from being ejected you need to look at the Move Policy that the Backup uses. Normally as soon as a tape is Active it is eligable for Move. Assign a Move Policy that does not imply a move out of the Tape Library.
