no import operation
Explanation: The imported image specifies a storage lifecycle policy name that
is not an import storage lifecycle policy and is immediately expired.

storage unit or storage unit group may be located in a earlier version.
Recommended Action: Use the nbstl command to view and change the older
SLP versions. Do the following in the order listed:
¦ Run the following command to display all versions of each SLP:
# nbstl -L -all_versions
¦ Determine the name and version of each SLP that references the storage unit
or storage unit group.

with the name of a different storage unit.
# nbstl <SLP_name> -modify_version <version_number>…
