Please check if the LUN on which this datastore resides is zoned and seen by the netbackup media server

You don't indicate what sort of storage you have moved to but I typically see this when I have set the transport to be iSCSI and the media server cannot access the iSCSI Lun due to permisisons or Lun mapping not updated.

NBU v7.5.0.6 Master and Media servers on RHEL 5/6 & Win2008; SAN based LTO3, 4 and 6 tape libraries
