I have so far worked in 3 big organizations along with big data centers. I have observed no company deploy NetBackup master server on VM machinesvirtual machine, only physical server for a NBU master.
I need to know reasons why not to Netbackup master server as virtual server.
* only master server, not master+ media server.  its not robot control host. no tape drives attached to it.

Hi 

Thats not entirely true. I have worked for few major projects where NBU master was installed on the virtual machine. 

It makes job much more easier in case of patching the server ( just take a snapshot ) or if you have to add / upgrade the hardware to the existing server.

    For your issue, disk storage is supported on virtual media server, not tape. It is better to read manual or guide of VM.
