Error description

  • Inactive NAS NDMP backups should be expired with the Tivoli
    Storage Manager Sever "expire inventory " process after they
    have exceed the policy retention. However, under certain
    condition, the inactive NDMP backups will not be expired.
    
    The problem can happen if  the following conditions met:
    - one  FULL active image
    - one FULL inactive image
    - one Differential inactive image and the Diff image is based
    off a  of the FULL inactive image.
    -both the inactive FULL and Differential images  have
    exceeded the policy retention
    
    
    Under above condition, the Diff image won't be selected for
    expire and, as a result both the inactive FULL and Diff  images
    remain in the Tivoli Storage Manager Server database .
    .

    If not, then manually remove the problem objects with command:
     delete object  object_id
