BRMS - Please enhance help text for error message BRM1771
We tried to change the Expiration Date of a tape-volume, either to *PERM or to a date in 3 years. This resulted in the error message BRM1771, which states that the date-format is incorrect. But the date-format was correctly set. After raising an IBM support case we learned that it is impossible to change the expiration date from *VER (which it was set before) to a date or *PERM. This is work-as-designed. The error message text is misleading, because in this case it had nothing to do with a wrong date format. Please enhance it with something like: "its impossible to change a version retention expiration to *PERM or a specific date, if the volume is part of a media set"
