As we need to keep a Dataset Volume for three years, will NGen:1, Retention:2, and Exp Date:01/01/2022 keep the 1 volume active and Not Scratch eligible until the Exp Date?
I was able to follow up with Level 2 this morning and verified that having the Exp Date set to 01/01/2022 will maintain the volume and it will not be scratched during that time.
In addition, the Dynam User Guide section entitled 'Using CA Dynam/T' and 'Establishing Retention Characteristics' specifies that: 'Before the system permits a generation to be scratched, the generation must be eligible for scratch under all the retention schemes associated with the data set.'

See the section entitled 'Using CA Dynam/T' and 'Establishing Retention Characteristics'.
