may occur during the reading, addition, modification, or deletion of an entry from
the container database. Note that the container database exists in file cntrDB,
which is located at install_path/netbackup/vault/sessions/cntrDB.

If you still want to delete this container from the container database, first empty
it by doing either of the following:
¦ Inject all the media it contains into a robot
¦ Clear the Vault container ID fields for these media from the EMM database by
using vmchange -vltcid with a value of – .
Try to delete the container again.
