Yesterday I "pre-loaded" a tape in my rotation because I was not going to be around later when I normally load the tapes, but I wanted to prevent that tape from being written to until the prior tape in the rotation had been grabbed first (i.e., I wanted "Daily 1" to go before "Daily 2") so I hit the Protection button on the "Daily 2" tape. Now today I want to remove the protection from "Daily 2" so it can be written to and the option to do this is grayed out. I thought maybe I could force the protection removal with PowerShell but I'm getting this error:
- Code: Select all
Disable-VBRTapeProtection : Failed to unprotect a tape medium KXJ779L4. Medium
At line:1 char:63
+ Get-VBRTapeMedium -Name "KXJ779L4" | Disable-VBRTapeProtection <<<<
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [Disable-VBRTapeProtection
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : DisableTapeProtectionErrorId,Veeam.Backup.PowerS
The only options available are Inventory, Catalog, and Properties. What am I missing that will let me remove the protection from this tape?
