Currently my backups (as I mentioned in previous posts) are dying
because NetBackup doesn't see recycled tapes.  It checks tapes that
are in the Netbackup database that are in the jukebox, and then fails
to examine "recycled tapes" (tapes that are no longer in Netbackup 
database).   I therefore wanted to move these tapes from their current
pool to the scratch pool.  however when I use vmchange I get the 
following error

% sudo vmchange -m NB0660 -p 2              
Could not change media ID NB0660: cannot change volume pool for assigned volume 
Where is this volume assigned?  I guess I don't properly understand
how the volume database handles recycled tapes.  Any help would greatly
be appreciated.
