Hi,

You can check the log files in
/var/opt/ignite/logs/makerec.log?

or

# mt -t /dev/rmt/0mn fsf 1
# tar -vt /dev/rmt/0m

Hope this helps,

Robert-Jan.

hi,
do this.
1. To view the archive later to bootimage use
mt -t /dev/rmt/0mn rew
mt -t /dev/rmt/0mn fsf 1
tar tvf /dev/rmt/0m |pg

2. You can use copy_boot_tape command to copy the boot area
into /tmp

copy_boot_tape -u /dev/rmt/0mn -b -d /tmp

It should create a file called /tmp/bootimage

It will also list out the boot file contents once it is done. You can
use regular lifls and lifcp commands against this file..

lifls /tmp/bootimage
lifcp /tmp/bootimage:AUTO -
This should give out the INSTALL string.
hpux (;0):INSTALL

Then the tape is created properly.
