Can't modify HP9000 DDS-4 Device!!!!

Can't modify HP9000 DDS-4 Device!!!!

Can't modify HP9000 DDS-4 Device!!!!

We have HP OpenView Storage Data Protector version A.05.05, internal build 330, running in Unix on an HP-UX machine.  On our HP9000 system, we have 2 DDS-4 tape drives set up.  For some reason, when I'm logged into Omnix, all of the options are greyed out to be able to modify the device.

I'm specifically wanting to be able to tell Data Protector which tape drive to use.  Currently the path is set to:  /dev/rmt/1mn.

But in the event of a drive failure, I need the ability to go in and change the path to /0mn to write to the other tape drive.  Is there something going on with the permissions as to why I don't have access to change it?  When I right click on the drive, the "properties" button is greyed out.  I can't even add a device or delete a device, as they are greyed out as well.

Any suggestions or help is appreciated...thanks in advance.
