Netbackup Disk media ID generatoin ( @aaaab )

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All

This is not a critical issue but it has begun to annoy me so have decided to give in and ask for help;

I have setup another NBU 7.5 environment using a Dell DR4000 dedupe appliance.  The media ID generated for the backups is @aaaab!!!

The customer has asked me to change this so it can be used to identify the storage device.  I realsie this doesn't really matter in the overall configuration but the fact that A) I can't find where it is set and B) if it can be changed is really really annoying me.

If anyone could shed some light on this I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Andy

This is automatically created when a 'disk'device is configured, as you are aware.

Unfortunatley it cannot be changed.
