ready no writable idle devices are available

We're trying to run a backup and received the following error message: 

"ready no writable idle devices are available"

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: ready no writable idle devices are available

You didn't give us many details to go on.  So I would start by looking at the Storage tab.  Are your devices (tape? disk? ??) busy?  Do you know why they are busy?  I susect you have a job already using the device that the new job wants to use.
