nbdecommission will move image ownership and remove entries for old media server from EMM database.

Nbdecommission is for disk

Nbdecommission is for disk and tape. You may want to concentrate your search criteria on that. I unfortunately do not have access to documentation right now. Question: what are your plans with existing DSUs? Will you mount the disk on the new media servers or expire current disk images and start fresh on new media servers?
