Pinned topic TS3310 - Cleaning tape expired too soon

‏2013-04-29T05:35:32Z |

Hi, 

We are currently using TS3310, TSM 5.5 on Windows 2003 server.
We are seeing an amber light in TS3310 with the following messages:
     T090 - Invalid Cleaning Tape

We understand that we need to checkout the old cleaning tape and checkin the new one but 
we currently don't have any cleaning tape. 

With the above in mind, we have 2 questions :
1. Can we run the backup without a cleaning tape
2. When we check the TS3310 web GUI - operator intervention for past records,
    it shows....
    2012, May 23rd - Expired cleaning tape checked out and New cleaning tape checked in
    2012, Nov 27th - Expired cleaning tape checked out and New cleaning tape checked in
    2013, Mar 1st    - Expired cleaning tape checked out and New cleaning tape checked in

    It's been less than 2 month after we checked in the new cleaning tape, we don't understand 
    why it has expired so early this time.

If you know anything about above, please do let us know.

Best Regards,
