I put Volume Use Duration = 36 months,
but always having sometimes :

Error: block.c:590 Write error at 88:2499 on device "OVL_LTO-3_Drive-2" (/dev/st0). ERR=Erreur d'entrée/sortie.
Error: Error writing final EOF to tape. This Volume may not be readable.
dev.c:1566 ioctl MTWEOF error on "OVL_LTO-3_Drive-2" (/dev/st0). ERR=Erreur d'entrée/sortie.



Pool {
  Name = Pool_gromel_LTO
  Use Volume Once = no
  Pool Type = Backup
  Recycle = yes                     
  AutoPrune = yes                  
  Maximum Volumes = 1000              
  LabelFormat = "Vol_gromel_"
  VolumeRetention = 36 months        
  Volume Use Duration = 36 months

Bacula has decided the volume has been open too long.

This is set with Volume Use Duration and has no default.

It is easier to use a new tape than to mess around with tape settings on 
a live system.
