Instal Library and Tape Tools from the below website.

Then follow the below instructions to create a Firmware Upgrade Tape (FUP)

1. In the device listing (the By Product or By Connection tab), click the device to test.
2. Click Test (to execute a test) or Utility (to run a utility) on the main toolbar. The test and utility
screen opens with the Test/Utility Execution tab selected.
3. Click the checkbox to the left of the name of the devices you want to test. The Test Group menu
lists all the tests available for the selected device.
4. In the Test Group menu, select the test to perform. The Description text box describes the
selected test.
5. If any options are available for the selected test, the Options button is enabled. Click the Options
button to review and set the desired options.
6. Click the Start Test button to start the test.
