Duplication Job: Required media is in use
I have a problem that recently started and wonder if anyone has any ideas on this that could help. The duplication jobs that run have suddenly started only allowing 1 active job to run instead of the configured 3. It is showing a message "Required Media is in use" under the status details. What is confusing me is that all forums/notes i have seen say about finding the media idea and releasing it as the resource broker may have allocated it (or something like that).
None of the jobs that are sat with this Required media is in us status tell me what media it is after. This is what i see in the job detail;

As you can see no media id is detailed which is not helping in trying to figure out what the heck is going on.
This morning when everything was stopped (i had deactivated the duplication jobs in the storage lifecycle policy) i did a restart of NBU just incase it needed a boot. When it came back, it looked to work as 3 duplication jobs started but then when they finished this problem showed up again.
So i wonder if anyone has any clues on what could be causing this and possible solutions? Any help would be appreciated.
