Question:
In Vantage object (VISIVTVS)IBM TS7700 Volume Status Information there are two fields

ExpiDate
   Expire Date
      If delete-expired, this time represents when it
      was deleted.

ExpiTime
   Expire Time

What do these fields exactly mean?
Answer:
As part of normal processing in a TS7700 Virtualization Engine, a customer can specify that
after a certain period of time after being returned to scratch, the contents of a volume can be
deleted. The ExpiDate and ExpiTime fields contain Date and Time when the volume can be deleted.
The related field in the VTS GUI display is "Earliest Deletion On".
