smart clone write protected

i made an application-managed snapshot and attached it to my server. i can see the disk and all the data in it but it is write protected.

i followed this steps:

1. Open the command prompt.
2. Type DISKPART
3. LIST VOLUME (to identify the volume in question)
4. SELECT VOLUME # (where # represents the volume identifier)
5. ATTRIBUTES VOLUME CLEAR READONLY

it completed successfully.

yet when i try to unchecked the read only and apply i get an error that the disk is write protected.

i am unable to change the label of this disk as well, receiving the same error:

 

"the disk is write protected"

 

how do i resolve this?

Re: smart clone write protected

it was an easy fix. Unassigned, removed volume from the server, assigned it again and it worked.
