Information in this document applies to any platform.
When changing an individual tape's expiration date in the GUI/obtool, it causes all media in that media family expiration dates to change. For example:
Here are 2 media in the 'test' media family, the expiry date is 16th March:
177 177 1 test-000003 nick 01/16.09:36 never closes; expires 03/16.09:36
178 178 2 test-000004 nick 01/16.09:36 never closes; expires 03/16.09:36
The expiry date (2 months from creation) corresponds to the media family configuration:
Keep volume set: 2 months
Volume ID used: unique to this media family
When changing the expiration date (forward 5 days) using the 'chvol' command for media 'test-000003':
Both the media in the 'test' media family expiration date is moved forward to the 21st March:
177 177 1 nick-000003 nick 01/16.09:36 never closes; expires 2014/03/21
178 178 2 nick-000004 nick 01/16.09:36 never closes; expires 2014/03/21
You see the same behavior when changing the expiration date using the OSB GUI (under 'manage -> volumes').
No changes to the system.
