reuse VAULT tapes


Hi to all!

I've set up a maintenance_plan on TSM (with ISC) that creates copy storage pool and use MOVE DRM to move these volumes offsite. That was a mistrake (for now :))
I'll implement DRM later, first have to understood very well the steps. Meanwhile, I've corrected the maintenance_plan and would have back as scratch the tapes of last night. The tapes were in "COURIER" state and then, after executing a "move drmedia * wherestate=courier" they are all to vault:

tsm: TSM-SERVER>q drm

How can I delete this dsm-set and reuse these tapes as scratch?
I have one TSM SERVER (5.4.1) with two LTO 3582 (one SCSI and one FC)
Mi prupose at the moment is to have all on TSM (disk and tape SCSI) and have some copy storage pool on second Library in FC, also without implement any DRM. This step will come in the future.

I would prevent to make mistrakes, also ask the community :)
Thank's a lot for your help!
