Remove a media with a *PERM expiration date from the inventory

Use BRMS Media to expire and remove a *PERM backup tape from the inventory.

I would like to know how to remove a media from the inventory that has already been removed from the tape library when the expiration date is *PERM.
Work with BRMS Media:
GO  BRMS ... 
Option 1 (Media Management) ... 
Option 2 (Work with Media) ... 
Select the tape(s) you want to see, hit enter.

Use Option 7 (Expire) to expire your *PERM tape. Then use Option 4 (Remove) to remove the tape from your media inventory.
