Re: Errror During Mksysb
Have you done all the normal AIX checking using the following commands:
lsdev -Cctape (Check if the tape drive is available and not defined)
errpt -a |grep rmt (check to see if the tape drive has had any errors)
fuser /dev/rmt2 (to see what, if any other process is using the device
Tried another tape cartridge?
Checked the current tape WriteProtect tab?

Subject: Errror During Mksysb
I have tried to do a mksysb backup of my aix5.2 tsm server 5.2 to tape
and I keep getting the following error:-
0512-017 mksysb: Cannot write to the device /dev/rmt2.
Either write protected or in use.
I have tried to delete tape devices and only configure the dat drive but
with no success. Is there any suggestions:-
The tape is fine, no problems with tape or tape drive...
Please help....I need to do an upgrade of db2 on that system and
therefor need to backup it up first....
