This condition occurs when using Backup Exec 2012 SP1a installation media. During the installation of the MMS / MBES if the option Unrestricted access to catalogs is chosen this issue may occur.

A registry key that enables the San Storage Option is preventing the option to allow the catalog mode to be changed on MMS / MBES servers.
