About adding media type mapping entries

Applies to API robots only.

The default media type mappings may not provide the wanted mappings. If not, add robot-specific media mappings to the vm.conf file on the host on which you are run the NetBackup Administration Console.

Information about how to do so is available.

See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide for Windows, Volume II.
