suggestions for IA64 rx3440 ignite-ux recovery tape drive

Management wants to buy a tape drive (preferably DLT/SDLT)  that can be used to create an Ignite-UX recovery for several rx3440 development systems. I'd like to be certain that the drive will also actually work as a bootable device as well. I've heard that some (possibly non-HP) drives will not be recognized as boot devices by HP systems. Anyone out there doing anything like this? Looking for a reliable VAR who can source a drive and cable as well.

>> IA64 rx3440


Such system does not exist.

There is a

rp3440 (RISC)

or a

rx3600 (Itanium)



What do you have???


I would get with a HP branded drive, nn-hp drives are probably not bootable.

Hope this helps!

The number was emailed to me by one of the techs. Just got back from the development lab and found that there were 2 machines: an rx w/SAS and an rp w/LVD. So they'd been misinterpreted by the tech. I did find a source for the drives;

and they seem to have what the lab needs.

 

Thx.
