HPUX 11.23 - rp7420 - HP 72GB DAT

I have a rp7420 with a HP 72GB DAT tape drive. I use DDS3 tapes in the drive. THe tape drive is used ONLY for IGNITE recovery tapes once every month. This past week I really needed the tape for a recovery but when trying to boot from the DDS, HPUX would not see it as a bootable device, but after booting (with many errors because my /var was corrupt, i could to tar to get my /var directory files back.


So after all of that, is there a specific driver I need to be using so I can use this drive to make recovery tapes - reliable?

The tape was a brand new Verbatum 40/80 GB tape, but ISL would not allow me to boot and rebuild from it....

Suggestions please!

Thank you for your time!

"...but ISL would not allow me to boot..."

Any screen captures?
Check console log from MP.

Hope this helps!
