Failed to generate LIF on tape

Hi,
I'm trying to generate a recovery tape with make_tape_recovery and it fail with the following error:
" Creating the Tape Archive
Checking configuration file for syntax
lifcp: Cannot create SYSCMDS; no space on the LIF volume
make_medialif: error - lifcp SYSCMDS failed
probable insufficient size for /var/tmp/uxinstlf.recovery
ERROR: System Error /opt/ignite/bin/make_medialif failed creating boot LIF file
ERROR: Failed to generate LIF on tape. "

The system is a rp5470 with HP-UX 11i and bundle patches of Jun-2002

Thanks for help me,

Hi,

It's a known problem. Install PHSS_27406 to fix it.

Re,

You can install the last ignite version B.3.7.96 available at www.software.hp.com. I think this version don't requier patch.

Re: Failed to generate LIF on tape

Make sure that you do not have multiple versions of Ignite installed:
# swlist -l fileset |grep Ignite

If you do, you should swremove and install the latest version.

In addition, make sure that you are on the latest version B.3.7.96 (there was a problem in B.3.7.95) from the web http://www.software.hp.com/products/IUX/download.html or B.3.8.186 from Sept 02 application disks.
