Using the Vault operator menu to manage container media

You can use the Vault Operator Menu to change a container return date and to delete the information about a container from the NetBackup databases.

Note:

(This note applies to Iron Mountain users.) To change a container return date, change the date using the Vault Operator Menu or the vltcontainers command. Then resend the Container Inventory Report or the Iron Mountain FTP file to Iron Mountain. Do not use the Iron Mountain account management facilities to change a container return date. If you do, the Vault reports do not match the report information maintained by Iron Mountain.
