Restaure the Tape of make_recovery on R380 2part

I think I have not given enough of explication
1-I made a make_recovery under K370
2- I restaure this tape under R380 but when I want start this machine, he stop on boot extrcat /stand/vmunix level. I think that the kernel that K370use can not be used under the R380.
I hop that every body understand my pb
Also I inform you the I have doing the same thing but the source machine is class D and the restaure on R380 was succseful.
I look for way to do the something like classe D

Hi:

OK. Ignite recovery tapes can be used to clone systems of like/similar hardware (K570 to K580). The D-class and R-class are fairly similar to one another but not to the K-series.

I would suggest testing/verifying the tape as I suggested in your first post (i.e. via 'tar' extraction).

Re: Restaure the Tape of make_recovery on R380 2part

When I have restaured the make_recovery in the system R380, I boot the system on CD and I break to ISL for recovery and I reinstall the kernel. Now I can boot and I have all my filesystem except the /home I don't know why.
So I try to do: tar -xvf /dev/rmt/1m /home from the tape of make_recovery but I receive this error: tar: blocksize=4 directory checksum error.
Have you any idea to restore my /home FS.

Hi:

Did you remember to skip the LIF file on the beginning of the recovery tape before attempting to extract the /home directory?

I have doing it
1- mt -t /dev/rmt/1m fsr 1
2- tar xvf /dev/rmt/1m /home ou tar tv|more
On the new system on R380
but I receive thaht error given befor
I think I must fixe the blocksize for reading the tape but I don't know how
