looks like issue with your tape drive, have you configured the tape drive properly?

>BR0213E Winding tape volume in device /dev/rmt/1mn failed

Can you take a OS level backup and check whether it is owkring or not? then try with SAP.

check if you have a tape in the tape drive. m,ake sure taht it is online. if using DLT tape, make sure that the door/latch is closed.

if la else fails, try to run this command as root at OS level:

mt -f /dev/rmt/1m rew

this command MUST work.
