Networker loosing manually set read only status of tapes

Networker loosing manually set read only status of tapes

Networker loosing manually set read only status of tapes

Good Morning,
Please excuse any lack of details as this is my first post. I have been requested to look after an old legacy backup system of ours which runs Networker 7.6.1. The Networker Management Console runs on a Windows server which I am told is connected to a Linux box that actually runs the EMC Networker application.Please note I currently have no access to the Linux box. The hardware is located at a site 18 miles from my home and I currently successfully access the NMC app on the Windows server WFH due to lockdown.
Yesterday I needed to stop 3 x LTO5 tapes being written to so in NMC right clicked each ( as it wouldn't allow me to process all 3 at once )and used change mode then selected read only option. The tapes changed from status Full ( recyclable ) to just full. So guessed this may have worked. This morning the tapes have returned to Full ( recyclable ). Please can someone advise on where I am going wrong.
Kind Regards
