Netbackup 6.0 Error

I get this error code 96 "unable to allocate new media for backup, storage unit has none available (96)" every day when i run backup. i tried to expire tape using bpexpdate every night before backup kicks up. but the next day again i end up failed jobs with the same error. is there any solution for this?

If you mave multiple media servers, you may also face a problem where all free media are assigned to  one media server, but not to the media server where you need them.
bpmedialist -mlist should help determining which media server has the tapes, if you are in that situation.
