This is a bug, would highly recommend you upgrade to NetBackup 7.5.0.6

Then Check out the technote below and download the EEB binary fix.

 

(ET3300058) <<Fix Downloadable>> After upgrading to Netbackup 7.5.0.6, the Activity Monitor displays either UNKNOWN or inconsistent Job Details.

Or upgrade to 7.6 when released
