In addition to "Appendable", "Non Appendable" and "Appendable on Incrementals Only" Data Protector should support a new Media Pool Usage Policy "Appendable for time interval".
This new Media Pool Usage Policy allows to specify for how long (hours, days or weeks) a specific media can be appended, after the first session has been written to it. After this period, the media cannot be appended and remains protected until the protection of all objects on the media have been expired. Then it becomes available for new allocation.
Existing Enhancement Requests:
QCCR2A51389: Media Pool Usage Policy "Appendable for time interval"
To allow the user to segregate daily and weekly backups using a single pool which is a common requirement in a world where a single backup media can store tens or hundreds of incremental backups.
