    You can only have one DB backup on each tape.

    To delete all db backups quickly, type this

    del volhist t=dbb todate=-1

    This will delete all backups except the ones made within the last 24 hours.

    Set up an admin schedule to run the following cmd:

    del volhist t=dbb todate=-X
    Where X is the number of days that you want to keep the backup

    Good Luck,
    Sias
