Does Symantec NBU Robot ever set the write protect notch?

I have been running into backups that error out because they can't use the tape, when I get the tape out I find the write protect

notch is closed.  I double check all my tapes to make sure they are not locked out, is the newer NBU robot libraries capable of

locking a tape because it has an issue or something?

I am almost certain it was not locked when I put it in the machine.

Cyclady47,

  What kind of tape drive and library are you using?  I'd like to know if this capability to change the write protect exists, but I think that capability is dependent on your tape library.  If NBU has a problem with a tape, it will Freeze or suspend the tape, not write protect it.
