Media Pool Management:
=> Tapes reaching its retention times are getting automatic free
=> Library has X tape drives, Tape backup job A is using tape from media pool Y. Backup job B is not able to write parallel to media pool Y. Tapes should be handled via look management, instead of look on Media Pool. We need parallel writing to media pool, to speed up tape jobs. Also this feature would eliminate the need of severals media pools, with exact same retention times, as workaround at the moment

Tapes reaching its retention times are getting automatic free

That's how product works at the moment. Medium that exceeds retention settings specified on media pool it belogs to will be automatically re-used during next run.

If you search through the forum, you will see that similar feature has been requested several times. So, it's on our radar.

Corresponding subforum as well as online help center should be a good starting point.
