Netbackup failing volumes

I just took over an installation of Netbackup.
It is currently running version 6.5.3.
I am often seeing these error in the disk logs:
Warning      BasicDisk      Volume netbackup:netbackup-disk:Converted60_1 marked down
After approx 45 seconds I get this Warning:
Warning      BasicDisk      Volume netbackup:netbackup-disk:Converted60_1 marked up.

When I look at disks and volumes I am not able to see any reference to "Converted60_1".
To me it seems like the installation was once upgraded and left this "ghost" disk in the system.

Am I barking up the wrong tree here?

Is the server it is backup up by chance a cluster? This would indicate a volume is unavailable, then becomes available. This could be a problem the way the system is configured.

This basically seems to indicate the volume becomes unmounted, then mounts again. Page 732 in the administrator's guide has a command for checking the volume.



We ended up using an external consultant who solved the issue. Unfortunately I never got a chance to catch up with him for the solution.
