How to remove write-protection of a disk

abcdgb
Level 1

Hello friends,

I created some volumes with the help of VEA in a physical disk, in one of them I have SQL server installed, a problem occurred and I need to repair this database, but... there is write-protection on this volume so SQL cannot repair it. I checked the permission configuration on windows and it didn't seem to be a problem, then I tried to give fulll control to everyone and a message appeared that this volume is write-protected. So, as this volume was created by veritas, I have been trying to find a way to remove this write-protection permission. Can you please help me about this? It is probably very simple but I have not found the solution, so I need a push.

Sorry if my english is not correct, native Spanish speaker.

 

OS: Windows server 2008
