Check the SAG page 158, where it talks about Configuring Catalog Backups -> 
Attributes Tab -> Media ID.  It states that the volume must be in the NetBackup 
volume pool.

I was told in Advanced class to only use the NetBackup pool for catalog 
backups.  I changed the policies that used NetBackup to other pools and changed 
the tapes to the new pools (all through the GUI) and everything is fine.

You could "assign" the tapes manually with vmquery.  Give it the same
status as other catalog tapes (0x1 I believe).  Then the volume will
never be assigned to Netbackup for backups.
