I/O error "243" when backup to tape

Hi all,

We have DB2 EE version 7 and we are trying to backup our databases to
tape (up to now we were backing them up to file without problems) with
"db2 backup" command.

Our problem is that we get this error message:

SQL2025N An I/O error "243" occurred on media "/dev/rmt0"

Device exists and works OK, there is not a media failure and
permissions are all right, in fact, we can make a tar from the same
user's session and read it back.

Does anyone have any idea ?

thanks in advance.

Excuse me, forgot to say that OS is AIX 4.3.

Regards.

Verify that the userid (instance owner) for UDB has write authority for
the tape drive.
