drm primary pool off site

Not using DRM. Manually, you can do anything you want with those tapes. However, there are disadvantages to manually taking primary tapes out of the library:
- reclamation won't be able to run on these tapes as the archives expire
- you only have a single copy of the data, if the tape goes bad or gets corrupted, you loose the data
- if there is a disaster at the offsite location, you no longer have a copy leaving you with only the possibility to create a new archive
- it's more work because you have to manually identify, checkout the tapes you want to ship out, and also manually track them.

I have the same opinion

I think it is complicated to manage, but I think it may be useful beacause i have many nolimit archives and a long recovery time does not matter

Do you know how to do this properly ?
