I've searched the post but did not meet my situation.
I have 3 tapes that backup TSM DB for offsite vault (named DOS1DBL5, DOS2DBL5, DOS3DBL5).

My "q drmstat":
Recovery Plan Prefix:
Plan Instructions Prefix:
Replacement Volume Postfix: @
Primary Storage Pools:
Copy Storage Pools:
Active-Data Storage Pools:
Not Mountable Location Name: NOTMOUNTABLE
Courier Name: COURIER
Vault Site Name: VAULT
DB Backup Series Expiration Days: 7 Day(s)
Recovery Plan File Expiration Days: 60 Day(s)
Check Label?: Yes
Process FILE Device Type?: No
Command File Name:
I used 3 of them to backup TSM DB by command manually per week:

backup db dev=LTO5 type=full SCRATCH=NO VOLUMENAMES=DOS1DBL5

When checking the status by q drm:

Volume Name State Last Update Automated
Date/Time LibName
---------------- ----------------- ------------------- ----------------
DOS3DBL5 Vault 08/23/2016 07:31:26
DOS2DBL5 Vault 08/16/2016 08:52:33
DOS1DBL5 Vault 08/09/2016 08:59:15
My configuration setting for expire DB backup after 7 days (change from V to VR), but today (08 Sep 2016) after 1 month, the volume still not move to VR stat?
I didn't use storage pool (or copy storage pool) for this DB backup, i backed up directly to volume.

Thank you

First of all, you do realize that 6.2 will be out of support by 04-2017?

Update to 6.4 if you cannot update to 7.x. I believe there was a bug identified in relation to this but I cannot be sure (answering you from memory) as I am still looking for that specific APAR.
