I do a db backup every day. but I only send a copy offsite once a week on friday.
So, to resue the tape I usually issue:
del volhist todate=today-3 type=dbbackup
then, I update the volume being send offsite and finally I checkout that volume.
this allow me to keep few copies onsite and one to send offsite.
the next friday I issue the same command to delete the volhist today-3. and send the newest copy offsite.
I continoue this process for 5 week which means in 5 weeks I will reuse the dbbackup tapes that I send offsite.
In the middle of this cycle what will happen to the tapes that are stored offsite after issuing the
del volhist today-3. will this delete all tapes (expire data) which means the dbbackup tapes are useless.
