restore from offline backup , no backup logs

Hi Experts

I am restoring a database from an off line backup from tape , backup was taken three months back , backup utility is Commvault which uses brtools with the client. currently I donot see the corresponding  backup log ( beklodrv.aff) file ( 3 months old ) , according to the SAP note 1003028 which I am following needs the backup log file of the backup to start the  restore command.

Is there anyway I can get the restore started without the backup log file with brrestore/ recover command ? I have a successfull backup in tape, not sure if the log file is there and donot know how to retrive the tape if it is there.

How the log file has gone , how can keep the files in /oracle/SID/sapbackup for longer time ?
