Resolved the issue.

 I have expired the media using bpexpdate. it was preventing me to perform import due to entry of old expiration date. then I was able to change the volume to Import. Import 1 completed successfully.

I was aware that "it is not possible to change the pool of an assigned media". I was expecting the solution to why its happened. when I tried to perform import on other netbackup master server. the media was showing assigned.

Re: Sure that expiring this media

Cordial saludo,

Se notifica que se descogela el medio y posterior a ello permite asignar el pool que se desee.

Gracias por vuestras explicaciones, me ayudo para solventar el mismo problema que estába presentado.

Cualquier duda o comentarios al respecto quedamos atentos.
