I know this is an option in other backup software I have used so it is a pretty common thing. It would allow for more efficient use of media across pools.
I do this manually today. Each day I received tapes back from offsite. I check-in the tapes and verify their info in Veeam. If they are truly ready to expire I manually move them to the Free Media Pool thus making them available for any job to use.
Ability to modify the expiration date from the GUI. Right now we have one media pool for all of our backups (we do daily incrementals with weekly active fulls), so we only have one retention period. However, we have Daily, Monthly and Quarterly backup job retention periods. So right now our retentions periods in Veeam do not match up with the retention periods at Iron Mountain.
