duplicate the images from the tape with the damaged 
label to the tape with the new label (if you haven't 
already duplicated the images on this tape before, NBU 
only allows 2 copies to exist)

You can do this from the GUI or command line, its your 

Before doing that I would do the following (you'll need 
the info later)

bpduplicate -s 1/1/70 -id DAMAGED_LABEL -PM > /tmp/outf

This command will give you a listing of all the images 
on the damaged piece of media (again given that you 
haven't already duplicated some or all of the images) 

Then once that is done, make the tape with the new 
label the new primary copy (npc) with the following 

for i in `cat /tmp/outf | awk '{print $5}'`
bpduplicate -npc 2 -backupid $i

This will set copy 2 as your primary copy.  Then if you 
want you can bpexpdate the old tape with the bad label, 
or just leave it until all images have expired 

Hope this helps
