Vmquery -deassignbyid will only remove the volume from the volume
database.  It will not expire the images associated with the volume.
These images will remain in your image database until they expire or are
removed and this can cause some confusion when selecting images for a
restore.

Try doing :
vmquery -m <media id>

This should give you the pool number and status.
