Backup failed as media is write-protected

Hi,

I am having mds 9000 series ds-c9124-k9 switch. To this switch IBM server and tape Library is connected through fiber cables. When we try to take backup an error message is displayed which says "Media is Write-Protected". I can see the tape library but write is not happening on it. When I remove the switch from the middle and connect server and tape library directly the backup starts taking place.

Is it anything to do with the switch?

Is there anything in the switch that I need to enable for the backup to take place?

Hi,

If the zone has the read-only attribute enabled, then disable it.

Regards,

David
