I have a cataloged RMAN Backup from 2009 that I need to restore but I cannot seem to restore the particular control file from the tape using the NetBackup Media Manager (SBT_TAPE). The backup commands include the current controlfile.

Unless I am missing something here. The correct tape has been loaded into the library and mouted read-only. Anybody ?

The status is EXPIRED, this means the backup is no more there.

Try crosschecking the backupset.
If RMAN really finds the file, the status should be changed to AVAILABLE in output of 'list backup'.
