Does anyone know how to automatically check a tape to make sure that it has not expired before running a backup. I know you can use BRMS but we do not have BRMS on our system. We have set up the backups to put an expiration date on them but if the operators put the wrong tape in I get a call at 3:00am. I would like to have the system check that the tape in the drive has not expired before the backup runs.
