bpexpdate -m <medialabel> -d 0

 will expire everything on the tape.

vmdelete -m  <medialabel>

will delete it

then just put the tapes in the library and inventory it and if they are barcoded they will be relabeled. otherwise you will have to label them manually.

bplabel -ev <media id> -d <tape density> -p <pool name>
