Yes, the E55 supports 11.0:

Despite the fact that your log told you this tape was good, it does not seem to be. I would re-make the archive.

1. Make sure you have the latest verion of Ignite/UX (download it, don't use it from an HP-UX cold install)

2. Make sure pax is the latest version. MTR will test pax for a required filename handling problem but nothing else. Get the latest pax patch.

3. See if the archive actually has a second directory:

# mt -f /dev/rmt/0mn rewind
# mt -f /dev/rmt/0mn fsf
# tar tvf /dev/rmt/0mn

(/dev/rmt/0mnb is whatever your tape drive is with the No-Rewind option set. The atr should produce a long list of files.

4. When you run MTR, specify the verbose flag (-v) so you can see all the steps on the screen. It should match what is in /var/opt/ignite/recovery/latest/recovery.log

If the tape drive is bad it will always make bad tapes. If you are using DAT2, you need to verify each tape, since those didn't do a read after write.

1.Check for tape drive,it should read properly]
till the end.
2.What is the Tape drive at IgniteUX server and
your E55 ignite client,is it same.After
making the tape using "make_tape_recovery"
remove the tape drive from ignite server and
put it in the client and install it.
2.still u are facing problem u can try
installing via network make_net_recovery(1M)

This sounds only the tape drive issue,
