I just upgraded to NB 7 from 6.0 MP4. Everything went smoothly excpet for one thing. When I looked in my DEFAULT volume Pool I now have approx. 70 tapes listed there that should not be there. These are various weekly, monthly and quarterly offsite tapes. It's as if the upgrade didn't recognize these. I believe they've lost all their netbackup data such as expiration date.
Any ideas how to fix this?

i had the same issue some of my media was assigned to scratch pool.I immediately eject from library and write-protected it. Then logged a case where we did a emm db repair with support's guidance and a script to update the EMM. This was a emergency case as we had potential dataloss issues. Months of backups could have been wiped out!!

Did you go directly from 6.0 to 7.0 ??? It's not recommended. You should to upgrade to 6.5.x (highest) and then to 7.0.

my upgrade was from 6.5.5 - 7 but the server was previously on 5.1 (which was upgrade to 6.5.5 only a few mths ago.)

Did you check consistency of your database (Catalog and EMM) before upgrade to 7 ? There is a new database for EMM in NB 7 (Sybase ASA 11). 6.5 database is exported to text files and then imported to Sybase 11. Maybe something was broken in 6.5... ?
I think you should to log a call on support to resolve this issue.
