Re: ignite-ux error

It is telling "failed to write" - so I would try if the system can write to this tape in general first or try with another tape.

Hope this helps!

Re: ignite-ux error

Hi,

See if you can write successfully to the tape using another form of backup, i.e. tar or cpio in order to eliminate ignite.

Examples :

tar cvf /dev/rmt/0mn /etc

find /etc -print | cpio -ovcBxa > /dev/rmt/0mn

If they fail also then there is an issue with either the tape in the drive or the drive unit itself.
