KVVU2_$ init mkb0: test
%INIT-F-FILNOTEXP, file is not expired
Device MKB0: is a TLZ10, why am I getting the error?

The Answer is :

     FILNOTEXP,  file is not expired on volume on 'volume-name'
      Facility:     MOUNT, Mount Utility
      Explanation:  A tape file cannot be overwritten because it has not reached
                    its expiration date.
      User Action:  To overwrite or delete the file, mount the volume with the
                    /OVERRIDE=EXPIRATION qualifier. You must be the owner of the
                    volume or have volume protection (VOLPRO) privilege.
