This is incorrect.  The catalog information is always stored on the
master server.  When you convert your master to a media, you will lose
the catalog.  Similarly, the policies are all stored on the master

The media server currently is responsible for managing the tapes that it
has written, not the catalog.

You need to decide what to do about the catalog data.  You could
import the tapes on your current master but this could be a very
time-consuming process.
